Corning Employee Leads Winning Odyssey of the Mind Team
For seven years, one Corning employee has shared his commitment to education within his community by helping schoolchildren compete in Odyssey of the Mind, a hands-on, problem-solving competition.
He has guided his team of fourth graders – who created a clever haunted-house play with a twist – all the way to the world finals.
The team’s play, about the Evil Broccoli Queen clashing with Pepper Mint and her candy friends in Veggie Land, won the regional title and was second in the state. The team's four girls and three boys went on to participate in the finals at Iowa State University.
