GPISD Spelling Bee Winner

Houston, Texas: At the 2016 GPISD Spelling Bee, the top competitors from each elementary and middle school gathered to see who would become the GPISD spelling champion. After many grueling rounds, Edelene Gomez (pictured left), a seventh grader from Galena Park Middle School, spelled “calamity” correctly to claim the victory. She will represent GPISD in the Houston Public Media Spelling Bee on April 2, 2016 at 2PM, which will be aired live on PBS and streamed at www.houstonpublicmedia.org/spellingbee. The runner up, Diana Delosa (pictured right) from Tice Elementary, is the alternate for the citywide spelling bee.
