We are proud of SJCA sixth grade scholar, Davin Smiley~
SJCA Board Member, Mr. Scott Norteman, attended the district spelling bee and writes the following:
Davin Smiley (6th grade) represented SJCA extremely well tonight in the district spelling bee.
There were 38 contestants from all of Clay County's elementary and junior high schools.
Davin made it through eleven rounds and survived to 4th place overall.
From about round six and up, the competition was extremely tough.
He definitely set a new standard for SJCA and turned many heads in the process.... lots of "who is that kid'..."is he from SJCA?"
In addition to his performance tonight, he also looked sharp....he was the only one wearing a tie.
After speaking with his parents and hearing him discuss how much he prepared for the event, it is no surprise that he made it as far as he did.
Please let him know how proud we all are.
