And the winner is…
Seventh grader Matt Bryant has claimed the title of Loveland Middle School (LMS) Spelling Bee Champion. Classmate Tommy Blair won runner up in the Thursday, Jan. 10, competition.
“Matt and Tommy are both outstanding students, and I am proud of what they each accomplished,” said Chris Burke, LMS principal. “I have no doubt LMS will be well represented as the competition continues.”
The LMS Spelling Bee is part of the larger WCPO-TV Regional Spelling Bee, which is part of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Bryant will represent LMS in the next round, which involves completing a 50-word online test.
“I’m excited and just hope I get to move forward,” said Bryant.
If selected to advance, Bryant will compete at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center February 23.
