Audrey Doherty, a KSA student studying under Dr. Baldwin, recently embarked on a journey to the national spelling bee, a prestigious event sponsored by Scripps, where she went head-to-head with the top prize winners from state spelling bees across the nation. Not only did she successfully qualify for the national competition, but she also advanced all the way to the quarterfinals! Audrey’s experience at the spelling bee was truly memorable, and her enthusiasm for the event has already sparked thoughts of returning next year to compete once again. Way to go, Audrey!
