Congrats to the Hoover High Mathletes

Jason English

The Hoover High School Math Team from Hoover, Alabama—our founder Will Pearson's alma mater—recently finished 8th at the national Mu Alpha Theta Conference, so we sent them our most popular math shirt. That's Will in the back, not some old ringer brought in for the conference.

If any members of the 1st through 7th place teams would like to commemorate their performance with math-themed t-shirts, this link is for you.

Notable Hoover High alumni* (besides Will):
"¢ Heather Whitestone, the first deaf woman to win the Miss America crown (though it wasn't called Hoover High when she graduated)
"¢ Taylor Hicks, the 2006 American Idol champion
"¢ Chad Jackson, Denver Broncos wide receiver
"¢ Jeff Brantley, former major league pitcher (like Miss America '95, he actually graduated from W. A. Berry High before it became Hoover)
