Spell it Out For Me 

Matthew Giese is a young man whose parents attend my church in Forest Park. Young Mr. Giese is also a student at Mars Hill Academy, a private Christian school where he attends the seventh grade and where his father teaches.

Matthew did his family, his church and the local community proud by coming in twelth place in the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee. The finals of the bee were televised on ESPN and the competition was very tough. The fact that Matthew finished as well as he did (out of 273 kids) and in such a big contest says a lot about his character and determination.

Hats off to a bright young man and here's hoping he'll do better next year.
