Baltimore's Spelling Bee a Huge S-U-C-C-E-S-S!

This month, Higher Achievement Baltimore hosted its Inaugural Spelling Bee. Over 30 scholars participated, practicing each day so they could tackle words such as “proximity,” “blatant,” and “benign.”

Parents, mentors, principals, teachers, and our esteemed judges packed the house to cheer on the scholars and celebrate the importance of academic competition! After rounds of intense competition, 3 scholars per Center emerged as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place champions!

We are proud of all of our scholars for their effort, sportsmanship, and demonstration of Higher Achievement’s culture principles: Excellence, Respect, and Spirit. We look forward to seeing the scholars perform again at our upcoming Love Poetry Performance in May!

Special thanks to our judges: City Councilwoman Conaway, Bea Scott, Karan McClimans, Kristie McManus, Rosalinda Fleming, and Ronald Triplet.
