The 'Force' is strong with this team!!! For the third year in a row, the Miami County ESC Spelling team has emerged victorious in the Altrusa Spelling Bee. This year's team, brought back team members, Myrna Yoder (Board Member), Rosemary Frey (Speech Pathologist), and Bethany Whidden (Speech Pathologist).
This trifecta of spellers sealed the ESC's third victory with the correct spelling of 'pterodactyl' (correctly spelled by Bethany Whidden) following an incorrect attempt by the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center. Then the final word to clinch the victory, was 'cayenne' , spelled correctly by seasoned speller Myrna Yoder.
The ESC's team was voraciously cheered on by it's own spirit team who developed the theme 'May the Force of Literacy be With You'.
Congratulations, Team! Way to represent the ESC!
