Middlebury student wins Vt spelling bee again
COLCHESTER — A Middlebury student has won the statewide spelling bee for a second year in a row.
The Vermont Department of Education says Ronan Howlett, a Middlebury Union Middle School student, out-spelled other students from around Vermont on Wednesday at St. Michael’s College in Colchester.
Howlett’s winning word was “desultory.”
He will head to Washington, D.C., in June on an all-expense-paid trip to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
