Miami Herald Spelling Bee

On March 6, sixth-grade student, Brady Oropesa, represented WA in the Miami Herald Spelling Bee. There were 67 public and private schools who sent students to compete in this county-wide event.

In addition to improving students’ spelling skills and increasing vocabulary, spelling bee participation provides valuable experience in developing poise. As a result, Brady gained a necessary skill for success in public speaking and performing arts. We are thankful for Brady’s hard work, especially the hours spent preparing above and beyond his regular school work. We are proud of how he represented Westminster Academy!
