It’s Spelling Bee Season – and the Home Schoolers are Representing in Oklahoma

March 12, 2012

Oklahoma is sending a Stillwater Home Schooled student to the Scripps Spelling Bee this May.


From the Oklahoman:

A Stillwater seventh-grader won the Central Oklahoma Spelling Bee on Saturday afternoon at the University of Oklahoma.

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.
