ADPR Spellers Strut Their Stuff



The ADPR Spelling Bee Team of Lariscy, Reber and Smith dazzled the competition at the Athens Charity Spelling Bee today.

Fresh off the BlackBerry from Athens Tech...our roving reporter, Dr. A sends in this report.
"1st word: aardvark. They did perfect!!!"

"The team was eliminated in the 9th round leaving on stage only 2 teams." The ADPR team was "awesome. The word that got them was 'Khartoum' the capital of Sudan."
Signing off from Athens Tech, Dr. A

The team leader, Give-Me-That-Mulligan-NOw Dr. Lariscy said "We had a ball! The best thing, you know, is that we were the #2 team in fundraising---we collected $500 for the illiteracy battles in Athens Clarke County---they were really pleased and surprised that a 'first year team' would raise so much, and subsequently, do so well!"
Go Grady!

I searched "aardvark" on the English-Korean dictionary. The dictionary had the word but I didn't even know what it was in Korean. Khartoum? No way.. haha.. :D

Congratulations and Thanks!
