GREENBRIER — The spelling bee at Wooster Elementary School was won by Hayes Polk in this exciting battle of words. The last word spelled correctly was eruption. Polk is taught by Mandy Uekman in the fourth grade. Second and third place winners are Whitley Raney, a fourth grader taught by Mrs. Andrus, and Emily Gentry, third grader taught by Kenny Darling.
Polk and Raney will travel to the Conway High School auditorium February 9 to proudly represent Wooster in the Faulkner County Spelling Bee.
Anita Harris, Computer Lab Manager at the school said, “It was a good match this year and interesting that the younger grade students won.” Wooster Elementary School is a kindergarten through fifth grade school. This annual event is organized for Wooster under the direction of Angela Hartman, GT Specialist.
