Spelling Bee Champ Goes to Washington

Good Luck, Sam!


Sam Stephens, an 8th grader at LMS, is in Washington D.C. this week for the Scripps National Spelling Bee! As the regional champion, he earned a place at the national competition and will be competing there against all the regional champions in the country the week after Memorial Day.

Sam is accompanied by his spelling team coach, Mrs. Veldman, whose support and hard work make it possible for LMS students to compete at the local--and now national--levels. Thanks to Mrs. Veldman, and way to go, Sam, who will represent LMS with Lancer poise and class!
