While most of us rely on Spell Check, these kids simply don't need it! Ian Robertson, Creekwood Middle School seventh-grader, was named district Spelling Bee Champion for the third consecutive year at the annual Humble ISD Spelling Bee. Advika Rapolu from Greentree Elementary is the 2019 Humble ISD Spelling Bee Runner Up. Each year Humble ISD hosts a spelling bee for Grades 3-8. Students first participate at a campus level bee, and winners move on to the district level competition. Spelling is only a portion of what these students study.

Lone Star College-Kingwood faculty and staff are better than ever as they celebrate the official grand reopening of their newly renovated campus on Feb. 15. The Kingwood campus sustained about $60 million in damage as Hurricane Harvey dumped water in six of their nine buildings. Most of their buildings had at least 3 feet of floodwaters. LSC-Kingwood faculty and staff immediately got to work creating hybrid and online courses for their students while the campus was under reconstruction for 16 months. The library is scheduled to open in April.
