The following is an overview of what happened in the EMS Library this school year. It’s not as detailed as I would like, but it does give you an idea of what the students were able to participate in this year in the library.
Congratulations to Asia Pleasants, winner of the 2016 Tuscaloosa County Spelling Bee! She competed against 18 other students from around Tuscaloosa County and spelled into 1st place. She will represent Tuscaloosa County in the Alabama State Spelling Bee in March.
I have my fingers crossed that her new play will cross the Atlantic to be performed at a theater near us.
