Kalani Cox, fourth grader from Carroll Elementary, placed second in the event; and Monahan Elementary fifth grader Savannah Gomez took third.
Zarzoza will now represent Sheldon ISD in the 2019 Houston Public Media Spelling Bee at the Baylor College of Medicine Academy at Ryan Middle School (Houston ISD) on March 23. If, by chance, he is unable to attend the event - Cox will serve as the district's alternate.

Congratulations to all Spelling Bee participants!
