GMS student representing Galion at Tri-County Spelling Bee Thursday

February 6, 2018

Galion Middle School seventh grade student Adam Geiger will represent the Galion City School District during the Tri-County Spelling Bee at 6:30 p.m. at the Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center (MOESC) Thursday, Feb. 8.

Geiger qualified for the advanced level competition by finishing in the Top 12 of the Crawford County Spelling Bee at Bucyrus High School Jan. 11.

“Our students worked diligently to prepare for the Crawford County Spelling Bee,” said Leanna Ferreira, Gifted Coordinator. “Adam has been studying diligently to further develop his spelling skills for the regional competition at MOESC.”

Two Galion City School District students qualified to take the online Scripps spelling bee test, which determines a student’s qualification for the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee at Ohio University in March. Sixth grader Courtney Woerlein and fifth grade student Jillian Capretta took the test and expect the results to be announced in the second week of February.

“I want to commend our students, along with Mrs. Ferreira, on a great job preparing for the county spelling bee,” said Jim Grubbs, Galion Superintendent. “We are excited for Adam in the Tri-County Spelling Bee at MOESC and wish him all the best in the competition.”
