Combs Hosts Pinal County Spelling Bee

On Friday, February 16, 2024, the J.O. Combs Unified School District had the honor of hosting nearly 60 students from across the region for the 61st Annual Pinal County Spelling Bee at the Combs Performing Arts Center!

Three Combs students competed in the regional competition after earning their spot as district winners. These students were Miguel Tovar from Simonton Elementary, Shaylin Hyman from Ranch Elementary, and Salman Rashid from Harmon Elementary.

Rashid ultimately finished in third place for the entire region, and will serve as the Pinal County alternate for the state competition! Join us in congratulating these students on this amazing accomplishment!
