Student moves to national competition

Call it the ol’ switcheroo.

For the second year in a row, a Lincoln Parish student and Gunasekaran twin won the Louisiana You Be the Chemist competition, a contest that encourages fifth through eighth grade students to explore important chemistry and science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts.

I.A. Lewis sixth grader Jonathan Gunasekaran brought home this year’s Louisiana championship. His twin brother, Benjamin, won the state competition in 2015.

This year Benjamin could not defend his title as he took home second place.
