Berkshire's District Spelling Bee winner for 2016/17 was Burton Elementary fourth grader, Gavin Foye. He defeated over 40 other spellers in grades 4-8 to take the district win and on Tuesday, February 7, he took second place in the Geauga County Spelling Bee.
Gavin was the youngest speller to compete in the contest and battled 15 rounds, finally taking runner up to a student from West Geauga. Berkshire is proud of you, Gavin! Keep up the great work and dedication!
