Christian Ted Pamintuan, a seventh grader, emerged as the 2018 School Scripps Spelling Bee Champion of Green Meadow School last Jan. 12, 2017. He will represent the school for the third time in the Regional Scripps Spelling Bee in Guam on March 3, 2018. Pamintuan studied and memorized over 2,000 words from the official 2018 Scripps Spelling Bee to be able to bag this honor.

“In order to become a spelling champ, one must have endurance, diligence, determination, love for reading, discipline, and confidence,” said Pamintuan.

Chealzka Navarro, a fifth grader, was the school’s runner-up and will also be travelling to Guam for the regional competition as an alternate. She competed head-to-head with Pamintuan during the championship and lasted until 12th round with him.

The school administration, faculty, staff, and parents would like to congratulate both students and looking forward to bring home what Pamintuan always wanted—a regional champion. (PR)
