The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County held the Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee this month at Quail Valley City Centre.
This year’s co-chairs were Fallon Moody & Ann Kingrey. Over 18 teams competed in this year. Several sponsors helped make this fun event a big success. Both Houston Methodist Sugar Land and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospitals stepped up to help. Congressman Troy Nehls and his wife Jill were also sponsors, as was Vincent Morales, Fort Bend County Commissioner, Pct.1. In the academic year of 2019/2020, more than 900 adults were served by the Literacy Council and 90 percent of those students reside in Fort Bend County.
