La Salle Teen Wins State Spelling Bee

Posted by wlpo on March 17, 2012

Do you ever watch the national spelling bee on television?  You could see a teen from La Salle competing this year.

13-year old Grant Innis won the state spelling bee yesterday in Peoria.  The Lincoln Junior High eight grader now advances to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. on Memorial Day weekend.

Spelling is in the Innis family genes.  Grant’s mom Gretchen placed third in the 1980 state spelling bee.
