Rocky Mountain Conference Spelling Bees held
Western Slope Spelling Bee Update
After several rounds of tough words, Sammie Hodges, from Spring Creek Adventist School in Montrose, Colo., received the Grand Champion trophy for the Western Slope Spelling Bee. Read more.
Many thanks to those who contributed to the success of this occasion: Pastor Fritz Krieger, of the Montrose Church, gave the morning worship. Pam Dupper was the organizer of this fun event. Lonnie Hetterle, RMC superintendent of education, helped call the words and gave out the trophy and ribbons. The fine ladies at Montrose provided lunch for everyone, all the teachers and drivers, and, last but not least, the students who worked so hard! We all look forward to next year’s Western Slope Spelling Bee.
Front Range Spelling Bee Update
Logan Bryant, from Mile High Academy in Denver, Colo., endured many challenging rounds of words, and he took the Grand Champion trophy for the Front Range Spelling Bee.
Outside, the weather was gray and dreary, but in the Mile High Academy gymnasium, there were lots of sunshiny faces, ready for the 10th Annual Rocky Mountain Conference Spelling Bee. After a rousing worship given by Steve Hamilton and Jessica Beans of the RMC Youth department, we got down to business. Rules were read and knees started knocking, then the third graders and their fans headed off to the “new” gym while the 4th graders stayed in the “old” gym. There were lots of great spellers but in the end, we had 14 scholars competing to “BEE” the winner.
