Valaulikar Outspells the Competition
In the grand finale of the 2021 Terry N. Shelton Spelling Bee December 3, the final five participants – eighth graders Wilson Pace, Sohum Valaulikar, and seventh graders Luke Henry, Kaanit Valiani, and William Warmath – battled it out in Dunavant Lecture Hall.
After several grueling rounds, the last two standing were Valiani and Valaulikar. Valaulikar nailed Albion and d’orsay to cinch the competition. He will represent MUS at the Shelby County Spelling Bee next semester.
