2013 Cherokee County Schools Spelling Bee full of winners once again

Posted on: October 28, 2013

The Cherokee County Schools Spelling Bee took place at Martins Creek School on October 17 and all fifteen students at the Bee were amenable to spelling the words they were given.  However Martins Creek 6th grade student Pressley Payne actually had to spell “a-m-e-n-a-b-l-e.”  He did it calmly, distinctly, and perfectly, winning the 1st Place trophy along with a one hundred dollar cash prize.

The two competent runners-up were 7th graders, Eric Fox, from Hiwassee Dam Middle School in 2nd Place and Marie Sawdy from Murphy Middle School in 3rd Place, winning trophies along with fifty dollar and twenty-five dollar cash prizes respectively.

In addition to Pressley Payne, Hannah Smith and Eris Davis represented Martins Creek.  Hiwassee Dam students Nina Nicholson and Tucker Lynn joined Eric Fox, and Hagan Newton and Aleayah Cox came from Murphy Middle School along with Marie Sawdy.

Andrews Middle School students included Magnus Fonda, Joshua Um and Karra Postell.  Kirsten Pickelsimer, Shawn Bruce and Kaylee Campbell represented Ranger Middle School.

Parents cheered, teachers and principals smiled, and the hard-working students simultaneously breathed a sigh of relief.

Many thanks to all the crafts people and Friends volunteers who helped raise funds for prizes.
