Special to this newspaper
The following is one in a series of accounts written by those who have participated in the Literacy Volunteers of America, Imperial Valley chapter Spelling Bee for Literacy. The stories serve as a preview of the 14th annual LVA spelling bee May 2.
Many moons ago I was approached by Phyllis Colter of the Literacy Volunteers of America to participate in what was to become the agency's annual spelling bee.
I have been proud to be a part of a very worthwhile organization that provides a service to the residents of Imperial County that is dearly needed.
