La Salle Speller Bows Out Of National Bee

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2012

When the bright lights were on, La Salle’s Grant Innis aced the spelling test.  Unfortunately he didn’t do good enough spelling off the lit stage to advance in the national spelling bee.

The recently graduated Lincoln Junior High student nailed both words during yesterday’s televised rounds of the Scripps Spelling Bee.  Innis knew how to spell “remand” and “keest”.  However he didn’t score well enough in Round 1 testing which was done Tuesday on computers to be one of 50 semifinalists.

Innis is one of 278 students to compete in the national spelling bee.
