Spelling Bee Champ!

An assembly was held on Thursday afternoon to congratulate one of our students, who won the 2017 Telegram Regional Spelling Bee. Representatives from The Telegram were on hand to present Vincent Burton with his trophy, and to wish him well as he heads off to Washington, D.C., to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

On behalf of everyone at MDJH, well done!  Good luck in Washington!
