“Team Lawrence” Successfully Defends Fox Valley Spelling Bee Title

The correct spelling of “fasciation” earned Lawrence University its second straight title in the Fox Valley Literacy Council’s annual Spelling Bee Thursday evening (10/20) at the Holiday Inn.

"Team Lawrence": Dave Burrows, Elise Mozena, Marcia Bjornerud and Jenna Stone

Spurred on by a vocal group of supporters, “Team Lawrence” — Provost David Burrows, Professor of Geology Marcia Bjornerud, Director of Corporate, Foundation and Sponsored Research Support Jenna Stone ’00 and student Elise Mozena ’12 — outlasted eight other area teams to win the Spelling Bee champion’s crown for the second year in a row.

Congratulations on a job well done.
