The Fuqua School spelling bee was recently held with classroom winners from grades five through eight participating. Fuqua School had some amazing spellers who completed for over an hour and a half. The winning word was Icarus, a character from Greek mythology who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Congratulations to eighth grader Marya Dunning for winning the spelling bee two years in a row! Sixth grader Holt Mason was the runner up in this year’s competition. Other participates were Marissa Dempsey, Addie Gilley, Barrett Motter, Ava Thrasher, Christian Cannady, Hannah Myers, and Ryan McKay with alternates Madeline Baldwin, Katherine Sadler, George Magnotti, Erica Chapman, Kayla Knott, and Brooke Coleman.
