The Knights of Columbus council #14485 recently held a District Spelling Bee at the St. John Paul II Roman Catholic School. The spelling bee was broken into two age groups, 5th and 6th grades and 7th and 8th grades. Words used for both grade levels have been selected from the 3rd Edition of Webster’s New International Dictionary and its addenda section. The State Youth Activities Director, on a master list for each grade level, has supplied all words for competition. The winner of the 5th and 6th grade group was John Brotzman (pictured) and Drew Petrella won the 7th and 8th grade group. Both will advance to the Regional meet. Pictured from left with the winner is Ron Kornatowski – council Public Relations Representative, James Fitzsimmons – council Grand Knight and Jack King – council Youth Director.
