Martins Creek School holds in-school Spelling Bee on May 6

Posted on: May 20, 2010

The Cherokee Scout’s Newspaper in Education program and Friends of Murphy Library are cosponsoring the Cherokee County Schools Spelling Bee for the fourth year in a row.  Students from sixth, seventh, and eighth grades compete for prizes by spelling words from the National Spelling Bee word list.

Martins Creek Middle School is hosting the final bee on Thursday, May 13 at 10 a.m. under the direction of teacher Mrs. Debbie White.

The school held its in-school bee on May 6 to find the top three spellers who will compete in Thursday’s final against the best from participating schools.  Eight boys and five girls took turns until D. J. Mock was left standing as the winner.  Maddy Mock came in second, and Bryson Cheek won third place.

 Many students return to compete each year of middle school. This year at Martins Creek, D. J. Mock, April Wilson, Chandler Sosebee, Teonna Morin and Gavin Davis all returned to compete.  Cherokee County is the ultimate winner to have these intelligent students in its midst.
