On Tuesday, October 20, 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 belligerent, irreverent, propellant, and scorpion. The students continued with endless energy until it came down to the last two winning words – “rhinoceros” and “cellophane”. The winner of the Spelling Bee was Victor Louie of 8C, and the runner-up was Marylynn Scuderi of 6D. Victor Louie will continue his spelling achievements and represent Kellenberg Memorial in the local county spelling competition at Hofstra University in February 2016.
Congratulations to Victor and all the students who participated in the Spelling Bee!
