Queen Bee

By Nancy Gutierrez

There are many mnemonics used to help remember spelling rules. 'I' before 'E' except after 'C'. When two vowels go walking the first does the talking. These are rules to live by, or at least spell by and for fifth grader Ryanna Fierro they were rules to win by. Fierro was the winner of the Rocky Hill Spelling Bee held Jan. 14.

There were more than 40 third, fourth and fifth grade students competing for the honor of best speller and the competition was fierce. Students spelled round after round tackling words like deposition, organic, audience and anatomy.

After one and a half hours of spelling Fierro was named Spelling Bee Champion. She and Redfern will now go on to represent Exeter at the county level and go head to head against spellers from elementary schools throughout Tulare County.

Redfern took second place overall and for the fifth grade category. In the fourth grade category first place went to Amanda McElrath, second went to Taylor Berry and third to Orion Long. In third grade, first place went to Henry Orijel, second went to Kiersti Smith and third went to Savannah Dougherty.
