Board Recognizes 2017 Spelling Bee Winners


During the June meeting of the Pamlico County Board of Education, two students were recognized for their Spelling Bee performances.


Fred A. Anderson Elementary School’s Spelling Bee Winner was Amare Jarvis. Ms. Harwick had this to say about Amare, “Amare Jarvis is a wonderful student, but more than that, he is a good person. Amare always faces challenges with a sense of optimism and not just a "can do" attitude, but a "will do" attitude. He is a very social person who is always looking to interact with his peers. Amare is fortunate to have two parents who support him in any activity he chooses to pursue and encourages him to be the best in whatever he does. Amare has a bright future in front of him and we can't wait to see what he does.”

Seventh grader Noah Johnson won the 12th annual Pamlico County Middle School (PCMS) Spelling Bee on February 13, 2017.  Noah was one of 11 students that battled hard to win the title.  After much studying and preparation, Noah became the champion and then went on to represent PCMS at the Downeast Regional Bee on March 25th in Washington.  Noah, along with a handful of other spellers from surrounding counties, made it to the final round of spelling where he tied for 5th place overall.  This is the highest ranking that a student has had in the regional bee from Pamlico Middle.  Congratulations Noah!
