Annual Spelling Bee A Huge Success

The Bee was back at Horace Greeley High School, raising over $18,000 for the Horace Greeley Scholarship Fund. Greeley’s SHARE (Students Have A Responsibility Everywhere) Club organizes the annual event, which raises money to assist Greeley graduates in affording college, along with providing opportunities for students to give back to their community through a variety of community service projects.

At this year's Bee, teams were sponsored to compete in a spelling competition, with words of increasing complexity read by pronouncers, who this year included Assistant Superintendent Dr. Adam Pease, Bell Principal Mr. Geoff Curtis, and Greeley English teacher Dr. Cayne Letizia. Teams of students, teachers, and community members all joined the fun, making the Bee an event for the whole #WeAreChappaqua community. (continued below)

Adam Fink, one of Greeley’s SHARE execs, shared, "The 13th Annual Spelling Bee on November 6th proved to be one of the most successful events since before Covid . . . We are so excited for these proceeds to directly help HGSF award grants to Greeley seniors, and to allow them to achieve their dreams of a college education.”

Students from Greeley’s SHARE club and middle school SHARE Jr. clubs were all involved in organizing the fundraiser, led by SHARE Advisors, Greeley School Counselor Rebecca Mullen and Staff Developer Mary Devane. 

Thank you to our students, staff, and community members for supporting this important event.
