A senior from Grayson, Georgia...

Brandon Welch

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years I'd like to be working on my doctorate and/or post-doctorate studies and teaching at a university.

How did you prepare for the show?
Six years on the academic quiz bowl circuit has helped me a lot. I didn't really prepare so much for some of the questions as for some of the categories, like those involving word clues. It wasn't as intense as I would've liked, but I do have five AP classes to take, so...

What is your dream category?
My dream category is... STAR TREK. If I were to get that category, I would be quite ecstatic.

Any plans for your winnings?
I would like to put all of it in a savings account and just let it grow and accumulate and see what happens.
