SOUTHEASTERN SPELLING BEE

FCA fifth grader competes among best spellers in the South

Faith Christian Academy fifth grader Cobb Hollingsworth competed against more than 80 top spellers from schools in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Florida last weekend at the ACSI (American Christian Schools, Int.) Southeastern Spelling Bee in Atlanta. Cobb made it to the second round, where the word “homogeneity” led to his elimination. He was only one of five fifth graders to compete in the event, which was the national qualifier for students in grades fifth-eighth, according to FCA Principal Amy Grubb. Cobb got the chance to compete there after placing second among fifth graders and third overall at the regional bee in Vidalia for students in fifth-eighth grades. Three other FCA students also competed in Vidalia, including Hunter Via, Peyton Rabun and Caleb Corbitt. Hunter placed ninth among sixth graders, Peyton placed fourth, and Caleb Corbitt placed sixth.
