ETMC Jacksonville spelling bee team members Dana Hail, Sam Barron and Lacey Overstreet spelled their way to victory at the Jacksonville Literacy Council's annual spelling bee on May 6. After several elimination rounds, the team won the event after correctly spelling "Emphysema".

The spelling bee is a fundraiser for the Jacksonville Literacy Council, which provides tutoring and assistance for people seeking to improve their literacy and living skills, earn a GED, learning English as a second language and studying for the U.S. citizenship exam.
