Hartshorn principal Kenneth Frattini stated he is proud of Adillon's accomplishment.
"I am so proud of Louise on her victory and all the students for their exceptional effort and enthusiasm," Frattini said. "It’s exciting to have our children participate in an event that included every Hartshorn student."Hartshorn students have been competing with each other for a place in the New Jersey regionals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, an annual spelling bee held in the United States and run on a not-for-profit basis by The E.W.
