OMG Prakash won the bee

Prakash prepares for the National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC

A new sign hangs in the Marvin Ridge hallway to accompany this one that congratulated Prakash Mishra on winning the Union County spelling bee. The new sign reads OMG Prakash is off to DC. On Monday, March 15, Prakash won the Charlotte Observer Regional Spelling Bee in Charlotte and is now off to represent our state at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. WCNC news channel live streamed the regional bee to their web site and MRMS broadcast the stream throughout the school via our in house cable system. When Prakash spelled the final word, E-C-H-E-L-O-N, correctly a growing cheer was heard throughout the halls and cafeteria where many of his fellow students were watching. Prakash returned to school after being treated by his parents to a nice lunch and was greeted by many well-wishers with enthusiastic congratulations. Now, we are all rooting for Prakash to do just as well in Washington D.C.
