Jamaica’s spelling bee champion – Deneiro Hines will be aiming for glory when he competes in the 90th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee this week in Washington, D.C.
Hines, a 7th grade student of Glenmuir High was crowned the 58th National Spelling Bee Champion earlier this year after correctly spelling E-P-A-N-A-L-E-P-S-I-S.
