This year’s winner of the Literacy Council of Union County’s Adult Spelling Bee was The Wingate Bee-Dogs from Wingate University. This is the Bee-Dogs’ third win and fourth year participating in the event.
Their lucky word was Cappalletti.
This year’s event on April 28 included 17 teams.
“We enjoy the camaraderie and competition,” Taura Napier said. “The Litarcy Council is doing great and essential work for this community and we are proud to support its program.”
The Literacy Council serves adults who read at beginning levels. The council is always on the hunt for new volunteers and is offering its training class, Literacy Council 101. For dates, visit www.literacyunion.org.
