Remember learning to spell in elementary school? The weekly spelling lists and spelling tests? Do you have fond memories or do they make you shudder?

Meet Jayden  a 8th grader at the Hancock Grammar School! She's the 2021 Spelling Bee Champ and will head to the Hancock County Championship!

 Jayden's classmate spelled "travel" incorrectly. Jayden then had to spell "disease" and when she did so correctly, she had to spell "either" for the win!

Oh, and Jayden turns 14 on Saturday! Not a bad birthday present!
Jayden will be attending Ellsworth High School in the fall!
