We are so proud of Gavin, an eighth grader at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School, for his accomplishments in succeeding to the 46th Annual Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee. Gavin is one of three students within Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids that qualified and participated in this spelling bee. Way to go, Gavin!
Gavin competed and won our school spelling bee, and then competed and won at a regional level, qualifying him for one of the few spots at the Grand Rapids bee.
The spelling bee on Tuesday night lasted 18 rounds, which is a tribute to the talent and ability of all 16 of the contestants. Each contestant was sent home at the end of the night with a plaque to commemorate their achievement.
