Northwood Graduate Flies to Florida to Meet 81 Year Old Woman He Befriended Through ‘Words With Friends’

Spencer Sleyon, a 2013 Northwood High School graduate, moved from Silver Spring to New York to pursue his rap and producing career. The rapper/producer, known as Half Empty or High Class Filth, started playing the online crossword puzzle game ‘Words With Friends’ and eventually befriended 81 year old Florida resident, Roz, after playing over 300 games together.

The 22 year old flew down to Florida for a meeting organized by Amy Butler, a pastor at the Riverside Church in Upper Manhattan. They got to hang out at the retirement community In Florida that Roz lives in. Spencer has won 210 of their 324 games, according to this XXL article:

Here are a few photos of their meeting that Spencer tweeted earlier this week. What an awesome story!
