Dev Places 2nd in State Spelling Bee

Winston Academy student Dev Jaiswal placed second in the statewide Spelling Bee held today (Tuesday- March 19). The Bee was broadcast on MPB today.  Jaiswal was the 2012 statewide winner. After surviving
24 rounds, Dev stumbled on "Styptic". This year's winner was Desiree Roby, who was the 2012 runner up.

Twenty nine students participated in the event and Roby will advance to the National Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. to be held later this year. Congratulations to Dev for his continued success.
