An A1 Grade 4 student at W.I.S.E. Charter School, North Minneapolis, Latrell Mckelvy recently won the 1st place in the Grade 4 spelling bee contest held at Sojourner Truth Elementary.
“There are young and positive men in our community and my son is one of them”, says a proud mother Marshelle Mckelvy of her oldest child, Latrell.
Evidently, Latrell is academically very smart, but his performance in reading and math—his favorite subjects—is way above average. He is in a 6th grade reading class and 6th grade math class.
