Scripps National Spelling Bee Director Visits

Scripps National Spelling Bee Director Visits

In March, Sahasra Deepika Institute were honored by the visit of  Paige Kimble, the Executive Director of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and Corrie Loeffler, Director of Editorial Content at Scripps. Paige and Corrie recognized the efforts that Sahasra Deepika has been making through its Outreach Program to bring not only English instruction, but confidence and opportunity, to kids in underserved schools. They spent time speaking with the girls not only about the National Spelling Bee, but their love of reading and literature, and their favorite words. Paige and Corrie donated copies of  Scripps’ “Feed Me Words,” to our library. It was a truly inspiring and memorable visit.
