 V-O-L-C-A-N-O was the winning word for Abby Brame during the Spelling Bee on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at Poplin Elementary School. Abby is a fifth grade student in Brianne Durant’s class. After she won Abby said “I felt really excited and really good. I practiced a lot with my Mom and maybe it helped!”

Fifteen third, fourth, and fifth grade students competed for almost an hour during the competition which lasted 15 rounds. Michael Morgan, also a fifth grade student but in Mrs. Whited’s class, was runner-up in the competition. Joshua Roskoskey, a Third Grade teacher, was the organizer of the Spelling Bee and AIG teacher Shelia Dence and Assistant Principal Kate Earp were judges. The county competition will be held on January 28, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at C.A.T.A. Good luck Abby!
