Congratulations to Silas/Stimson Spelling Bee Champion Kylie Koo (from Ms. Shepherd's English class) and Silver Medalist Jose Lopez Solorzano (from Ms. Zisel and Ms. Anglesano's English class). These talented students progressed through 7 rounds of competition to become the first Silas winners in more than 15 years. We join in congratulating all the dedicated participants and thank Kylie as she represented South Huntington with great pride in the regional competition at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue.
