On Thursday, February 11th Chester Boren Middle School completed their annual competition for the Scripps Spelling Bee. There were six students who competed in the final round of the building competition. In the end Rayden Booska was declared the winner and earned the CBMS Championship. Rayden is a 6th grade student at Chester Boren Middle School; and he has now earned the privilege of representing Centralia in the Regional Competition. Our runner-up was JR Lesher. JR is an 8th grade student at CBMS, and he will complete in the Regional Competition should Rayden be unable to attend.
The Regional Competition will be held at the University of Missouri-Columbia campus in March. Congratulations to Rayden and JR on their performances.
