Ramirez ES Student Wins District Spelling Bee

Ramirez Elementary School fourth-grade student Mahider Gebre won the top spot at the district spelling bee on Saturday, securing her win by correctly spelling "disembark." Hutchinson Middle School sixth-grade student Shane Anish took second place.

Gebre will represent Lubbock ISD in the regional spelling bee later this spring. Anish serves as the backup if Gebre is unable to attend.
