Akhil Madala, our CMEC Spelling Bee winner for the second year in a row, recently took the online spelling test to see if he qualified for the next level of competition…and he passed! Akhil, a third grader, got 37 out of 50 words correct! Students need 30 correct answers to advance to the Ohio University Scripps Regional Spelling Bee. Akhil is one of 54 Central Ohio students, who will attend the bee. The OU Scripps Regional Bee is on Saturday, March 19th in Athens, Ohio. If Akhil wins the next bee, he will advance to the state level and then possibly to the National Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.! We will let you know if the bee will be broadcasted so you can cheer on Akhil! We are beaming with pride, good luck Akhil!
