On Tuesday, October 17, the Brother Joseph C. Fox Latin School had its annual Spelling Bee in the Kellenberg Memorial High School auditorium. Thirty contestants from grades six, seven, and eight battled through fourteen rounds of challenging words such as psychiatrist, inhabitant, entanglement, rhinoceros, and cellophane. The students continued with endless energy until it came down to the last two winning words – “pneumonia” and “bibliography”. The winner of the Spelling Bee was Ryan Gerhart of 8B, and the runner-up was Isabel Connolly of 7A. Ryan Gerhart will continue his spelling achievements and represent Kellenberg Memorial in the local county spelling competition at Hofstra University in February 2018. Congratulations to Ryan and all the students who participated in the Spelling Bee!
