Fourteen Rome City Schools students gathered at the College and Career Academy to participate in the annual school-wide Spelling Bee. There were two contestants representing each of the six RCS elementary schools as well as Rome Middle School.

A panel of three judges assisted moderator Scott Crabbe and caller Ruth Cipolla. Tod Wheeler, Stephanie Graves and Gregory Wooten made up the judges panel, each representing one of the Spelling Bee sponsors: National Copiers, Coosa Valley Credit Union and Communities in Schools Rome-Floyd County.

RMS student Liam Samples claimed the championship title and will move forward to compete in the regional Spelling Bee set for Feb. 6.

Christopher Neal of East Central Elementary took second place and Asa Cook of RMS took third place. Wooten presented each placing student with a medal of achievement, sponsored by CIS. Each Spelling Bee contestant received a certificate of participation.
