Krultz, Barbara (State Spelling Bee - 1975)

Barbara Krultz, seventh grade student from the Greenwood community schools stayed through the fourth round with 50 spellers from throughout the state to rank seventeenth in the annual state spelling contest sponsored by a Madison newspaper.

Barbara had won the Clark County contest held at Colby. She tripped up on the word, “Accrue,” in the state competition.

The top winner was Susan Strasman of the Cherokee middle school of Madison who spelled “dossier” and then the final word, “resilient.” She will be participating in the national contest to be held in Washington, D. C. Only students from grades five through eight are eligible to participate.

Accompanying her to Madison were her mother, Mrs. Selvian Krultz and sisters, Bonnie and Janice, and her teacher, Reginald Gobin and wife all of Greenwood. The Krultz family lives on Rt. 3 Greenwood.
