“GLM 40” Highlight in Education: Karthik Nemmani (Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion)

Our GLM staff have selected Karthik Nemmani (2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion)  as a honorable highlight in the area of Education. Karthik Nemmani, 14, of McKinney, Texas was named the 91st Scripps National Spelling Bee champion after correctly spelling the word, “koinonia.” He defeated the Bee’s largest-ever pool of competitors after 515 spellers took the national stage for three days of spellbinding competition. “I had confidence, but I didn’t really think it would happen,” Karthik said. “I’m just really happy. This has just been a dream come true.” The first-time competitor at the National Bee wins more than $40,000 cash, the Scripps trophy, and trips to New York and Los Angeles for national television appearances, among other prizes. We are proud to recognize Karthik Nemmani (2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion) in the area of Education in our 2018 “GLM 40” Highlights Edition!
