From Harford County Public Schools:
C. Milton Wright senior Jenna Booth makes a difficult task look as easy as Pi.
On “Pi Day,” otherwise known as March 14th, Jenna named 1000 digits of Pi in C. Milton Wright High’s 5th annual school competition; a competition she has won for the last four years. Jenna beat her competitor by an astonishing 723 digits, breaking her school record from last year of 800.
Since her freshman year, Jenna has memorized the numbers from year to year adding more digits every time. She remembers the numbers by listing them in rows of ten and memorizing those numbers as a group. It took Jenna around five to eight minutes to recite the numbers in perfect order without losing her place. She received a gift certificate to Regal Cinemas and a pie for winning the competition.
