Paul S. ’26 Wins Canterbury Spelling Bee

Congratulations to this year’s Spelling Bee winner for Canterbury School, Paul S. ’26, and runner-up, Patrick D. ’28!
“All of the spellers did a fantastic job up there in the spotlight -- it is not easy to withstand that kind of pressure, and I am so proud of our students for their performance,” shared Mrs. Smith.

Paul S. ’26 and Patrick D. ’28  will go on to compete in the Lee County Spelling Bee on March 11, 2021. The event is expected to be in-person, but there are no firm times or a decided location yet.
