Worcester Credit Union Gears Up to Compete in QCC Spelling Bee

Thursday, April 03, 2014

 

With the 16th Annual Qunisigamond Community College (QCC) Spelling BEE just one day away, employees at Worcester Credit Union (WCU) are hard at work studying their dictionaries in the hopes that they’ll take home the event’s top prize, while raising raising money for a good cause at the same time.

WCU employees Jason England, Wendy Matos and Deborah Tillman, the “Worcester Credit Union Spell Checkers” team, will be one of 20 teams of three people to compete in this year’s BEE.

Spelling for a good cause

“The QCC Spelling Bee is great way for the community to come together in a fun, competitive manner, while ultimately sharing a philanthropic goal to raise funds for student scholarships. It’s a ‘m–a-g-n-a-n-i-m-o-u-s’ act and one where bragging rights as top team are coveted,” said Steven Bud, Ed. D., QCC’s Acting Vice President of Community Engagement.

The event will take place on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 7 p.m. at QCC’s Hebert Auditorium, 670 West Boylston Street, Worcester. The Spelling BEE is sponsored by the QCC Foundation, with all proceeds from the event going toward programs and student scholarships.

“This is not only great fun, but it’s also for a worthwhile cause,” said WCU President and CEO Karen E. Duffy. “We participated in this event several years ago but did not win. We’re hoping to change that this year.”
Allen Fletcher, Chairman of Worcester Publishing, will serve as Spellmaster, with Andrea MacRitchie, QCC Dean of Library and Academic Support Services, serving as the authority on the English language, and Mary Christian, President of the QCC Alumni Association, serving as Beekeeper.

Judges include: Vice President of the Worcester Public Library Board of Directors Jim Kersten; CEO of Worcester Business Journal, Peter Stanton; and Editorial Page Editor of the Telegram & Gazette, Chris Sinacola.
