The Greenburgh Town Board will honor the winners of the Greenburgh Central School District spelling bee contest tonight at 7:30 PM. Harshita Shet won the big prize –and will be competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee competition later this year in Washington DC.

What makes a champion? I asked the school district to request each of the winners to share their bio’s with us ---highlighting their interests, hobbies, favorite subjects and career goals.  Our meeting tonight will be televised on local public access TV (cablevision channel 76 and Verizon channel 35).
We’re fortunate to have many smart children living in our town. The winners of the spelling bee competition have great futures ahead of them.
