What a spelling bee Thursday morning at Esther Garrison School of Visual and Performing Arts. It took all morning for fourth- through eighth-grade students spelled through high school and college level lists.
They were tested on words such as genoise, focaccia and alysium. Eighth-grader Jacqueline Ellis finished a strong third. Alayna Bowen earned second and Alexis Williamson won the event. Alexis goes on to the county bee. WTOC's Sonny Dixon called the words and was utterly amazed at these students.
