It’s Spelling Bee Season – and the Home Schoolers are Representing in Oklahoma
Oklahoma is sending a Stillwater Home Schooled student to the Scripps Spelling Bee this May.
From the Oklahoman:
Noah Cassidy, 13, is a member of the Stillwater Christian Home Educators group.
“He was born into it. We have seven children, and they’ve all participated in spelling bees over the years,” said Noah’s mother, Bobbi Jo Cassidy.
“He started competing as a kindergartner. It’s his eighth year at competition,” she said.
Noah’s sister, Hannah, won the bee in 2008 and 2009, and brother, Caleb, took home top prize in 2003’s competition, Cassidy said.
I’m looking forward to see who else makes it there. It’s been a while since a homeschooler won the Scripps, so we’re about due.
