And now, the Georgia Academy for the Blind, located in Macon, the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf in Clarkston, and the Georgia School for the Deaf in Cave Spring get to benefit from Kathy Cox’s smarts.

Cox, who was first elected in 2002, said the toughest question she fielded during her appearance on the Fox Network’s trivia game show was which country, besides Nicaragua, borders Costa Rica. But after she answered correctly--Panama--the rest of the competition was smooth sailing.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has an article on Cox’s triumph, as does as the New York Times.
