Former Champion Speller Among Winners To Advance To State Spelling Bee

Two Seventh graders have won the Shasta County Middle School Spelling Bee and will advance to the state match in Stockton April 27th. 34 students competed in Tuesday’s bee at Sequoia Middle School. The two winners were Grace McCullough of Redding School of the Arts, who correctly spelled “scullion” and Nousheen Abdolmohammadi of Grant School, who correctly spelled “sanguinary”. Nousheen has been to the state championships twice before- as a 5th grader and as a 6th grader.
