To the Editor:
Thank you to the MV Times for sponsoring an Island student’s journey to the Scripps National Spelling Bee each year. This year my son was the lucky recipient of a week in Washington, D.C., and, though he was out in the third round, he had a blast. He met new friends from all over the world, he was in a YouTube movie about spelling, he was interviewed several times on national TV, and he danced the night away with Bee pronouncer Dr. Jacques Bailly. He had the time of his life. Thank you to The MV Times for providing him with this opportunity!
