Literacy Council of Tyler 28th Annual Corporate Spelling Bee


Prothro Wilhelmi & Company was delighted to participate once again in the 28th Annual Corporate Spelling Bee, benefiting the adult education programs offered by the Literacy Council of Tyler.

This year’s theme was board games which boasted a sold-out crowd and intense competition among the 12 teams there to vie for the storied Bee Trophy.

As much as we enjoy the fun and excitement of this wild event, we are even more motivated to dress up in crazy costumes and spell difficult words in front of nearly 500 of our peers and colleagues, because doing so helps Literacy Council of Tyler provide education to nearly 2,000 adults each year.

By being a part of LCOT’s signature fundraising event, we know that adults will earn GEDs, learn to speak and write English, and most importantly, lead their families into a brighter future.

PW is proud to participate in the Corporate Spelling Bee but more importantly support the service Literacy Council provides to adult learners in our community.
