Another annual spelling bee at Metcalfe County High was completed  on December 5. Chelsey Rhinehart, Tony Kim, Sawyer Edmunds, Lavander Shirley, Ethan White, Leah Thompson, Abby Cline, Anna Judd, and Cesar Magana all participated to crown the top speller at MCHS, with junior Tony Kim taking home top honors.  

The competition narrowed quickly as the word “accommodate” dealt a fatal blow to the chances of half the participants. From there, Tony Kim, Cesar Magana, Leah Thompson, and Tiffany Perkins remained. After Leah was taken out by the word “acknowledge” to cement a third-place finish,  Tony and Cesar traded correct spellings for several rounds before Tony triumphed with a correct spelling of “business” in front of a capacity crowd in the MCHS gym.
