The Aouad Brothers - What A Week!

Wabash SID Brent Harris has quite a story over on his SID Notes blog about the Aouad brothers.

Last weekend Wabash junior Emmanuel Aouad competed at the NCAA Division III Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships for the first time. He finished 14th overall at Marietta in his first experience.
This week his 13-year-old brother, Kennyi, was competing for the third time in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. The Otter Creek Middle School eighth-grader worked his way into this year’s finals. Aouad finished sixth after misspelling palatschinken, a thin Central European pancake often eaten for lunch or dinner.

The brothers even got quite a bit of TV time. Check out Brent's blog for the full story.
