Floral Park Memorial eighth-grader Jacob Sinanan was named winner of
the school’s annual junior high spelling bee on Jan. 12. Jacob defeated
fellow eighth-grader Jacqueline Kelly with the word "unscrupulous" in
the final round.
All seventh- and eighth-grade English
classes held spelling bees and sent the winners to represent them in the
school spelling bee. English teacher Theresa Ball serves as the bee
coordinator. Jacob moves on to compete against other school champions at
Hofstra University on Feb. 5.
