This describes the middle school’s first ever spelling bee contestants today at 3:30 in the Commons! The top 18 students from grades 6-8 gathered to battle it out Akeelah-style! The top three performers were 3rd place winner, Justin Powell (7th), 2nd place winner, Rachel Berkley (6th), and our school winner….. Colton Drennan (7th)! Way to go to all who participated and special thanks to faculty: Mr. Jordan Roquemore (sponsor) and callers Mrs. Patti Eden and Mrs. Lisa Haynie. The top three winners now advance to regionals to be held in January and receive a free celebration lunch in the company of Mr. Roquemore and Principal Hayes at Ribmasters! Congratulations students for a job well done!
