Obituary: Candace Benefiel (Texas A&M)

It is with great sadness that Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance announces the passing of Candace Benefiel at age 60 following a fight with cancer. Candace worked with TQBA as a mentor and advisor since its founding and served as faculty sponsor of the Texas A&M Quiz Bowl program.
