On Sunday, May 3rd, five fifth and sixth grade students from Firelands traveled to Nord Middle School, in Amherst, to participate in the Lorain County Spelling Bee. Fifty-five students from Lorain County came together to compete in Division 2. Firelands was represented well with all five participants making it to round four and on. Fifth graders Gemma Hager and Daniel Ohle made it to round four, sixth graders Gabriella Keith and Liam Lockhart made it to round eight, and sixth grader Renee Clippinger came in third place. Renee spelled twenty challenging words to claim her spot.
Renee loves school and her favorite subjects are Math and Band. She plays basketball and softball and especially loves pitching. Renee loves a challenge and always works her hardest to do her best at everything she does. She loves spending time with her family camping during the summer and hanging out with her friends.
Congratulations to all five for an outstanding job!
