Fourth-grader ‘erupts’ to top of W-G spelling bee

March 15, 2013

WAYNESFIELD — Winning the school spelling bee once during an academic career would be quite an accomplishment.

Graham Knerr, 9, of Waynesfield-Goshen Local Schools, says he would like to go for a clean sweep.

Knerr, a fourth-grader, knocked out 19 other students to win the Waynesfield-Goshen School spelling bee and to qualify for the regional competition to be held in Lima March 23.

He won the competition by first spelling “humility,” and then following it up by spelling “eruption” to take home the title.
