Kennedy Boothe, an eighth grader at General Ray Davis Elementary School, is the 2019 Spelling Bee champ for Rockdale County Public Schools.

After many nail-biting rounds eliminating contestants, Boothe correctly spelled “hallucinations” and “conspicuous” to win the district trophy.  The 2019 RCPS Spelling Bee was held at Memorial Middle School on Feb. 8, and sponsored by the Rockdale Association of Educators.

The runner-up in the competition was Zaccheus Fairman, a fourth grader at C.J. Hicks Elementary.
