A Spelling Bee for Adult Literacy

May 2019

The Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL) hosted their 6th annual Grown-Up Spelling Bee, featuring six teams, three celebrity judges, and a spirited audience of supporters. Funds raised during the event will support MCAEL’s goal to serve 21,000 adult learners by 2021. Program Officer Caitlin Furey volunteered back stage at the event and was very impressed by the spelling skills on display. Congratulations to the winning team from Bethesda Magazine, who correctly spelled “MAMMONISM” to take home the championship trophy!
