Congratulations to Ellis Bell, our 2020-2021 Haas Hall Academy Scripps Spelling Bee champion! After winning first place in the school spelling bee in December, Ellis moved on to compete in the Washington County Spelling Bee, which took place for the first time ever on a virtual platform in January. Ellis made all of us at Haas Hall Academy proud by tying for second place at the county level. Well done, Ellis!
You may remember that last year, Ellis won first place at the Haas Hall Academy Scripps Spelling Bee as a seventh grader. He went on to be the first Haas Hall Academy scholar to ever win first place at the Washington County Spelling Bee. We were honored to have Ellis represent our school at the Arkansas State Spelling Bee, where he finished in a tie for 12th place. Thank you for your hard work, Ellis! You are an impressive speller and a great example of what it means to be a scholar.
