Victoria Leonard wins J-HMS Spelling Bee Championship

On Friday, January 21, 2022, Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School held its First Annual Spelling Bee. The spelling bee consisted of participants grades 6-8 interested in advancing their vocabulary. On behalf of J-HMS, we would like to send a special congratulations to our 2021-2022 Spelling Bee Champion, Miss Victoria Leonard (6th Grade). She will go on to compete in the Regional Spelling Bee on Saturday, March 5th at Louisiana State University-Shreveport.

We would also like to recognize the following students who competed: JoAnn Walker (6), JaQuan Qualls (6), Kailee Jacobs (7), Derrimie Malone (7), Madison Turner (7), Noah Murphy (7), Ciara Gray (8), John Michael Self (8), Amilyah Wyatt (8), Jaidon Venzant (8), Ma’Riyah Jones (8), Kameion Rogers (8), and Heavenly Candler (8).

“We know the benefits of spelling bees extend beyond language, today, each student demonstrated a new level of self-confidence, communication, and public speaking skills, and for that, we are beyond proud of them” – Danielle Copeland, Principal.
