Freeport Intermediate students participated in the first stage of the Scripts Spelling Bee, a national spelling competition.
For the second consecutive year, Nason Goins, 8th grader, proved to be FIS' top speller. Jose Cruz, also an 8th grader, earned the distinction of runner-up in this year's competition.
Goins will now move on to the district-level bee, where he will compete with other winners from Clute and Lake Jackson Intermediate schools.
Emilia Mata, Celine Jones, Jose Cruz, Aquaris Bryant, Khalil Rhodes, Nayson Goins, and Nathan Gamez
Congratulations to all the participants!
