Congratulations to Kathy Tran (L) of Strayer Middle School in Quakertown School District for winning the 2016 Scripps Regional Spelling Bee for Bucks and Montgomery counties this weekend. Kudos also to second-place winner Hailey McGarrity (C) of Arcola Intermediate School in Methacton School District, and third-place Jimmy Martin (R) of J.M. Grasse Elementary in Pennridge School District. The Bee was organized by the Pennridge Community Education Foundation and sponsored by the Council for the Advancement of Public Schools.
Kathy will be representing the region in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. in late May. Her winning word was “cryptozoa.”
