Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down - June 1

June 01, 2013

Thumbs up to Jade Lee, a Smithsburg Middle School eighth-grader who represented Washington County this week at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Jade correctly spelled “hippopotamus” and “bruschetta” on stage Wednesday. Although the results of her computer-based test didn’t propel her to Thursday’s semifinals, reached by just 41 of 281 spellers, she performed admirably.

Thumbs up to the medalists and champions at last week’s Maryland State Track and Field Championships at Morgan State University. The accomplishments of these high school athletes are the result of countless hours of hard work, determination and dedication to their sport.
