Spelling Bee

The Ladysmith Middle School Spelling Bee was held on Tuesday, January 19th. This year the Bee was coordinated by Mrs. Kempen, who along with Principal Mr. Posewitz, were judges at the competition.  Ms. Brooks was the Bee pronouncer.  This year’s participants included 6th graders Jillian Fiser, Andrew Johnson, Kaidence Mustard, and Bella Thayer; 7th graders Gavin Boehmer, Keira Hoyt, and Willow Peterson; and 8th graders Jaxen Donahue, Luke Lincoln, and Dane Prohaska.  The second-place finisher was Bella Thayer, and this year’s winner, who will represent Ladysmith in the regional competition on February 10th was Willow Peterson.  Congratulations to all participants and good luck at the regional competition Willow!
