These Park High School students embrace their 'nerdiness'


If you were in chess club in middle school and moved on to play "Dungeons and Dragons," "Pokemon," "Magic: The Gathering" or "YoGoOh," you qualify to join Park High School's Nerd Club.

The word "nerd" appeared in the Dr. Suess book "If I Ran the Zoo" and evolved to mean someone who is overly intellectual, highly technical, interested in fantasy fiction or inclined to like all things medieval.

The 20 to 30 young men and one girl who belong to Nerd Club are all over the above.
