Two Republic High School Students earned an award at a programming contest in Springfield. Senior Dylan Mackey and junior Caleb Bryant took second place at the Hack 4 Good High School Programming Contest. They used the Java programming language to solve four problems.
Mackey is a second-year computer science student, and Bryant is a first-year student. Both belong to the RHS Programming Club and are members of the Future Business Leaders of America.
After the contest, students received a tour of the Springfield E-factory and networked with IT professionals in the Springfield area. The Hack 4 Good Contest was sponsored by MATA (Mid American Technology Alliance) Springfield.
