2019 Huron County Spelling Bee

The Huron County Spelling Bee is hosted by the North Point Educational Service Center each Spring to recognize the abilities of Huron county students. Ten districts or Parochial schools were represented including: Western Reserve, Bellevue, St. Joseph Catholic, South Central, Monroeville, New London, Norwalk City, Trinity Christian, St. Francis Xavier, and Norwalk Catholic when the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center stage filled with 40 eager spellers ranging from 5th to 8th graders on Thursday evening, May 10, 2019.

Each of these students had qualified for this Huron County-wide Spelling Bee by his or her performance in their home school.

The audience, made up of family members and school personnel,  nicely applauded after each round concluded. Finally, in the tenth round, it was down to Dylan Allen, a 6th grader from South Central and Gavin Horn, an 8th grader from Bellevue. After a back and forth when each had missed and then the championship word was misspelled.  Gavin, however, triumphed when he spelled the second championship word he was given!

All participants received a certificate of participation.

Each of the top four places received a trophy:

Gavin Horn 8th Grader from Bellevue MS Spelling Champion
Dylan Allen 6th Grader from South Central MS 2nd
Emma Elkammaty 7th Grader from Western Reserve MS 3rd
Riley Morrison 7th Grader from Trinity Christian School 4th

In addition, a traveling wall plaque with Gavin’s nameplate on it will be presented to Bellevue Middle School to house in their trophy case for the next year.

A very special thank you to Mrs. Jeanne Lawrence for being the reader/moderator, and to Mrs. Tammy Robinson and Mrs. Jen Thayer for serving as judges as well as to Molly Wetherill of Norwalk City Schools for arranging the facility usage.

Congratulations to all of the participants!
