ILMS Spelling Bee
Can you spell repeat??
For the second year in a row, the top speller at Indian Lake Middle School is 8th grader Grace Johnson. After 18 rounds of intense competition, Johnson spelled "intubated" to become the 2022 ILMS Spelling Bee Champion! She also won the Bee as a 7th grader in 2021.
5th grader Starr Leonhart took the runner-up spot. In total, 20 other students who were all chosen from Language Arts classes, participated in the bee. Students were provided spelling words from the Scripps National Spelling Bee List. Johnson and Leonhart advance to the Logan County Spelling Bee in January at the Holland Theatre.
Johnson become the first ILMS student to win the Spelling Bee in back to back years in recent history! Congratulations to both Grace and Starr!
