PHS student to defend state championship in UIL accounting

image008Justin Hutchison, a senior at Paris High, will be returning to Austin to defend his state championship in UIL accounting.

Hutchison won his specialty event at the Region 2-3A UIL Spring Meet Saturday at Texas A&M-Commerce with a rare perfect score. The state meet will be May 22. Hutchison won the accounting event as a junior after finishing second in regionals to a student from powerhouse Argyle.

Hutchison’s event sponsor is Eric Chaverria. The only other PHS student to medal at regionals was senior Zach Nash, who finished fourth in Social Studies in a very close competition. Nash will be an alternate to the state meet. His sponsor is Cheryl Brown.
