Watauga Elementary School Wins Annual Elementary School Spelling Bee

A woman posing with a student.On Wednesday, December 6, 2017 spelling bee winners from the seven elementary schools in Washington County competed in the Annual Elementary School Spelling Bee at Abingdon Elementary School. After several rounds, Brenna G. from Watauga Elementary School was declared county champion, correctly spelling “supercilious."

When asked about her favorite part of the spelling bee, she was quick to reply “winning it!” and “celebrating at Dunkin Donuts”. Brenna is now eligible to move on to the News Sentinel Southern Appalachia Regional Spelling Bee, which will be held at the University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville, TN in April. Congratulations to Brenna and all the school spelling bee champions!
