Buddy Stasney and the Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce teamed up to host the 16th Annual Adult Spelling Bee at the James W. Warren Citizens Center Tuesday, March 19.

There were 37 teams from local schools and businesses around the county that came together to reach a goal of $14,000 for this year’s Spelling Bee.

According to Chamber President Ken Kindley , he was not quite sure how much was raised tonight but he said, "most if not all of the goal was raised". The monies raised will be going toward the Lincoln County Schools, education grants and more.

Pete Acker, the chief executive officer of CMC-Lincoln was the bee’s enunciator .
Teams would sit at tables with a captain for each team whose chair had a balloon tied to it, and they would have time to discuss the word and how it was spelled after hearing the pronunciation and definition, then they would have to spell it if the team got it wrong their balloon would be popped and they would be out. There were some challenging and even difficult words. During the Bee, the Lincolnton High school High Q team with help from the Lincolnton High Junior ROTC walked around selling sweets and drinks to the participants.

After three rounds and a final spell off round the three teams that remained were Lincolnton Animal Hopital, East Lincoln Middle School and North Lincoln High School.

Gifts and plaques were presented to the winning team from North Lincoln High School whose members were: Tamara Morgan, Teresa Atchley, Fara Dellinger, and Mark Ewing.

This marked the second consecutive year that North Lincoln High has won the spelling bee.
