CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A Baker Middle School student has put his school and Corpus Christi on the map all because of his geography skills.

This past June, eighth-grader Ashrith Reddy placed first in the US Geography Olympiad National Championship.

Ashrith, along with two fellow Baker students, qualified for nationals out of their geography club of 25 students.

You’ll hear about what kind of work ethic it takes from these students and the impact it has on the community tonight on KRIS 6 News.
