Ever since March, Bates Bennett’s classmates have been asking him when the Scripps National Spelling Bee is.

On March 2, Bennett won The Commercial Appeal’s Mid-South Regional Spelling Bee in Memphis, earning a spot in the national competition and in Starkville’s 175th Anniversary Parade April 6. Bennett is a sixth grader at Starkville Academy, where he said he was grateful to have fans.
