Recently, CCA students competed against Christian Fellowship School, Glasgow Christian Academy, and Heritage Christian Academy in the ACSI District Spelling Bee. This even was hosted by CCA and took place at Lone Oak First Baptist Church. CCA students participating were Kenadie Hughes, Jade Melton, Elijah Flynn, Sarah Baker, Ava Knight, Emma Wring, Jill Nichols, Max Story, Audrey Paige Wilson, Max Petty, Joshua Rather, Jaclyn Bondurant, Olivia Carroll, Samanthat Luker, Link Murphy, and Charisma Greene.
1st Grade – Kenadie Hughes, 1st
2nd Grade – Elijah Flynn, 3rd
3rd Grade – Emma Wring, 1st
4th Grade – Jill Nichols, 3rd
5th Grade – Joshua Rather, 1st
6th Grade – Olivia Carroll, 2nd; Jaclyn Bondurant, 4th
8th Grade – Charisma Greene, 3rd
Joshua, Olivia, Jaclyn, and Charisma then competed against 11 other spellers in a spell-off to determine which five students would be invited to Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana, to participate in the Regional Spelling Bee for the Mid-America Region. Charisma Green placed 2nd and Joshua Rather placed 4th.
Congratulations to all spellers for a job well done!
