On Tuesday, December 15th, VECA held its annual spelling bee. The bee was held virtually through Google Meet. Esteemed judges included Elton and Adrienne Dixon of Enay Coaching and Carla Gervin from Valdosta State University. Mrs. Calandra Jackson, assistant principal, served as the bee's pronouncer. The school's top twelve spellers from sixth through eighth grades competed after much study and preparation. In the end, Luis Mallqui-Aragon placed third, Ke'Marion Gayden placed second, and Caden Sapp was awarded VECA's spelling bee champion. Way to go, spellers!
