I’ve been too busy to watch the Scripps National Spelling Bee on ESPN and this afternoon, I wondered how Desiree Roby was doing. Desiree, a 6th grade homeschool student from Clinton, advanced to the third round. Here are her results from the competition. To see how other spellers fared, visit http://www.spellingbee.com.
I interviewed her and her mother Robin for a Hinds Ledger article and posted the full interview on my blog. Read it here and learn how Desiree and other young spellers prepared for the local, state and national competition. Kudos to Desiree for representing Mississippi in the spelling bee! I’m sure she will return next year and go further.
