Congratulations to Danville-Neel Elementary thirdgrader Holt Moore for being the winner of the Morgan County Spelling Bee.  

Holt was the youngest of the three finalists and had some tough competition. Each kindergarten through eight-grade school sent the winner from their local spelling bee to the county-wide competition. Holt now goes on to the statewide spelling bee.
