    The morning got off to a rocking start with the Middle School Jazz Band. Amidst all the applause, the 16 daunted 5th through 8th graders sat on the stage of the District Theater feeling marooned, their self esteem about to be put under the microscope. For all but one it would be failure.


    Spelling Bee Aspen Middle School The Scripps annual Spelling Bee was a test of vocabulary and perilous fortune. As each contestant approached the microphone wondering if the austere judges would tenaciously proffer an infuriatingly catastrophic word an avalanche of invisible emotion hovered within. Were these students, these compatriots, implacable? No. One by one their alliance crumbled to leave just one last spelling hopeful at the finale of this varsity of all mental competitions.


    It was not opinionated, nor peculiar that 5th grader Mino Khan-Farooqi won the competition with the word physicist. Perhaps it was heredity.


    Pronouncer and math teacher Sarah Beesley pulled the strings of the students as skillfully as a marionette and ASCENT teacher Caroline Hanson made sure the students weren’t feckless.


    The next level beckons at the University of Denver, March 11 for Khan-Farooqi where she will spell more specific and lyrical words. Stay tuned to find out whether Khan-Farooqi can ride the State levels like a champion equestrian or return home a pauper.
