Will advance to Lake County Sectional next month.
Alex Brown, a sixth grader at Deer Path Middle School, will participate in the Lake County Sectional Spelling Bee next month after emerging as the winner of the school's Spelling Bee this past week.
Brown was one of four finalists to emerge from a field of 55 spellers in fifth through seventh grades. The other three were Leah Kuperman (sixth grade), Aiden Kinsella (fifth grade) and Erika Herrmann (sixth grade).
Kuperman finished runner-up to Brown. Both girls received gift cards to Lake Forest Book Store, courtesy of the Association of Parents and Teachers.
