Ohmart/Vega Wins Literacy Network spelling bee The Queen City crowned the top corporate spellers on Tuesday, March 1, at the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati’s Great American Insurance Group Scripps Spelling Bee for Literacy. After three rounds, Peter Bauer of College Hill, Janie Melvin of Loveland and Michelle Hibbard of Mount Lookout, volunteer spellers for Ohmart/Vega, won the Spelling Bee. They advanced in the championship round by spelling pasticcio correctly and secured the title by correctly spelling chrysanthemum. Second place team mem-

bers from Western & Southern Financial Services, Mike Bechtel, Andy Black of Tri County and Pat Ellis of West Chester correctly spelled mesoseismal but were eliminated after misspelling quinquevir. Last year’s defending champions, Ascendum Solutions, (Deepak Dixit of West Chester, Tracy Bateman of Milford, and Pam Sheppard of Northern Kentucky) came in third place after misspelling tryptophanase. Members of the top three teams each received prize packages including overnight stays at

area hotels and gift certificates to entertainment attractions, and restaurants. Teams of three from 11 local businesses and organizations participated in the old-fashioned spelling bee with all proceeds benefiting LNGC. The theme of the Spelling Bee was “Back to the Beach.” Fifth-Third Bank won the team spirit award for their support and enthusiasm of their three spellers and Great Oaks won for best costume.

Oak Hills High School helps Classic assist charities

Oak Hills High School was among several Tristate schools to have its basketball team participate in the 2010 Bluegrass-Buckeye Charity Holiday Classic, which raised $10,000 for area charities. Organizers of the classic made the check presentation Tuesday, Feb. 1, at Oak Hills High School. The money went to the Ruth

Lyons Children’s Fund, Neediest Kids of All and WSNS Academy. In its nine-year history, the Bluegrass-Buckeye Charity Holiday Classic has donated more than $98,000 to area charities. Oak Hills was one of 10 boys’ high school basketball teams from Ohio and Kentucky who played games in the ninth annual classic

held last December at Northern Kentucky University’s Bank of Kentucky Center. The other Ohio teams were Colerain, Aiken, Princeton and St. Xavier. The Kentucky teams were Dixie Heights, Ryle, Covington Catholic, Mason County and Holmes.

Mount students taking break with Habitat The College of Mount St. Joseph sent 14 students to help families obtain simple, decent and affordable housing during their spring break with Habitat for Humanity in Greenwood, S.C. The students were participants in Habitat’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge. “This is our school’s sixth time traveling during our spring break to help families obtain affordable housing,” says Bridget Kent, Mount junior and president of the Habitat for Humanity club. “We are delighted to be of service to communities.” The group of students and their chaperones traveled to Greenwood, S.C., to

work on the Habitat for Humanity home. The students carpooled to the worksite and stayed at a local church for the duration of their trip. For the past 22 years, more than 182,000 students have spent their school breaks volunteering across the country through this Habitat for Humanity program. “We recognize that these students could have done a number of things during their spring break and are grateful for their support to help families obtain affordable housing,” said Cody Logsdon, Habitat’s manager of youth volunteer engagement at Habitat for Humanity. “The work these stu-

dents will do during their spring break will have a lasting impact in communities across the country.” Habitat’s Collegiate Challenge is one of the many programs Habitat has to engage youth ages 5 to 25 in Habitat’s work. Habitat for Humanity International is an ecumenical Christian ministry that welcomes to its work all people dedicated to the cause of eliminating poverty housing. Since its founding in 1976, Habitat has built, rehabilitated, repaired or improved more than 400,000 houses worldwide, providing simple, decent and affordable shelter for more than 2 million people.
