While students were getting quizzed in the state's Geography Bee, the head of Western's geography department wants to stress the importance of knowing the subject.
Dr. David Keeling says geography is more than just a place on a map.
Keeling says with the Internet and ability to travel anywhere in the world, we're all connected and can learn about other places, cultures, and societies.
He says he is excited to see children at the competition embracing the subject.
