Eleven elementary and middle school students came together for Mount Airy City Schools District Wide Spelling Bee. After almost twenty rounds of competition, eighth grader Matthew Chapman came away with the win while sixth grader Mitchell Fulcher battled well and finished as runner-up. Due to Matthew Chapman's conflict with the date of the Regional Spelling Bee, Mitchell Fulcher will go on to represent Mount Airy City Schools on Sunday, March 18.
