Charleston Daily Mail reporter Samuel Speciale will provide updates from the Scripps National Spelling Bee near Washington, D.C.
The speller sponsored by the Gazette-Mail is Varun Kukkillaya, a John Adams Middle School 8th grader who is making a repeat appearance at the national bee. Go Varun!
Other West Virginia spellers include Andrew Gould, a sixth-grader from Weston, and Marleah Knight, an eighth-grader from Morgantown.
Varun will get most of the Daily Mail’s attention, but we’ll try to keep you updated on the other WV spellers as well.
