The winners of the District Spelling Bee at Sumter County Schools are 1st Place: Lauren Key; 2nd Place: Curtissa Evans; and  3rd Place: Zy’kerria Dowdell. Shown from left are Walter Knighton (associate superintendent), Evans, Key, Dowdell, and Larry Walters, interim superintendent, Sumter County Schools.
