Bee winner again from Wallace Grade

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2014

Spelling “Babushka” Saturday meant a lot for a Wallace Grade School eighth grader. Drew Klatt spelled it and won the 2014 LaSalle County Spelling Bee held in Ottawa High School. For the second year in a row, Wallace Grade Schools students have won the bee. Ram Koganti of Wallace won last year and advanded to nationals. Klatt wins a plaque and monetary gifts from the Book Mouse and the William Ieuter trust. His parents are Mary Affrunti and Chad Klatt. Second place went to Peru Catholic eighth grader Jacob Jagiella who also received gifts from the Book Mouse and the Ieuter Trust. Klatt now has a date to spell again in the WEEK TV Studios on March 21. Babushka – by the way – is a scarf worn by elderly Russian women.
