  • Fifth-grader wins WES spelling bee

    Finally! Fifth grader Molly Brisendine brought home the gold at the recent Williston Elementary School spelling bee (fifth grade only). "I really studied. My parents [Lynn and Garrett] and my sister Lindsay called out the words," said Molly, a student in Tracy Kirby's class. "Wholesome" and "sensation" were the two winning words for Molly, who had competed all three years at WES and tied for first last year as a fourth grader.

  • 'Pregnant Mom' delivers in speech contest

    The focus was on the family for half of the speeches recently given by 4th and 5th graders at Williston Elementary School, and those three all won! Though it proved a challenging job, it was a fun experience for judges Annette Kordgien and Naomi Petteway, who enjoyed listening to the six contestants - Mackenzie Goode, Mallory Jones, Kaylee Nicholson, Cammeron Smith, Branden Spillane and Martha Ann Wilson - who were voted as the top speakers from the earlier grade level competitions. Kordgien, postmaster at Cedar Key and a past leader of various organizations, has judged before.
