The Beal City Spelling Bee took place on Monday, April 20, 2015 in the gym. There were 14 participants from grades 6-8; Ayden Case (6), Natalie Fussman (6), Mark Doolittle (6), Breanna Pety (6), Alex Benaske (7), Gavin Purgiel (7), Collin Fussman(7) Jared Gottschalk (7), Noel Schafer (8), Kendyl Wilson (8), Spencer Fussman (8), Emma Licina (8), Chloe Jaessing, and Emilie Ehler.
The first place speller was Ayden Case, who will continue on to the Regional Spelling Bee in Mt. Pleasant on May 13th. The second place speller was Noel Schafer, who will also attend the Regional Spelling Bee and participate in an alternate spelling bee show-down. All of the students did a great job making it to the spelling bee and getting up in front of their peers. A special thanks to Mrs. Wentworth (judge), Mrs. Henry (judge), and Mrs. Gigowski (pronouncer) for making it all come together.
