“At BB&T we spell partnership “H-C-L-S” because we know they will deliver quality educational experiences to our community. BB&T has been a sponsor of the HCLS Spelling Bee for many years. It makes me proud to see Howard County’s spelling champions fare so well in the National Bee, and it reassures me that my company is making a wise sponsorship investment.
Beyond the thrill of the actual competition, spelling bees improve concentration, equip students with public speaking skills, build confidence and inspire determination. But buzz on the street is that delivering such high quality learning experiences like the HCLS Spelling Bee requires more than public and corporate sponsorship funding. It takes me and YOU!
My personal, individual donation to Friends & Foundation makes up the shortfall between good and great. And that’s what it means to be a “Friend.”
