Reese Boyd continues to break new spelling ground. The Belmont County fifth grader took part in the Belmont County Spelling Bee this past March. The result was the first time that New Covenant Academy could lay claim to producing the county champ. That is pretty heady stuff for a mere fifth-grader, battling much older competition. Now Boyd finds himself in Washington D.C. to match spelling wits with some 300 spellers from around the country in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. It won't be all business, however, as Boyd -- as all contestants -- will be treated to a host of special events. The competition will be intense. Regardless of the eventual outcome we know one thing already: Reese Boyd is synonymous with winner.
