After several highly competed rounds between these students, Melissa Henderson was named the Jolliff Middle School spelling Bee champion in round 21 with the winning word: “duarchy” which means “a government by two rulers having equal power”.
Melissa will now advance to the Virginian Pilot Regional Spelling Bee which will be televised and held on February 16th.

Despite being in just their second season of FLL competition, both JMS teams brought home awards. The JagBots were recognized for having the best Robot Performance score of any team at the tournament, and were also selected for the Judge’s Award for representing the best of what the FLL program is all about. The JagBots Too team won the Robot Design award for the second year in a row, and were one of only three local teams selected to compete in the state championship tournament at James Madison University.
