Can you spell abhorrence?  Parker Strubhar of Piedmont Middle School in Piedmont, Oklahoma, can, and he proved it Saturday when he won the Central Oklahoma Spelling Bee.  Parker, 14, was the big winner of a competition that started with 23,000 students from 225 schools across Oklahoma.  He claimed victory by correctly spelling abhorrence and now gets to travel to Washington, D.C., to represent Oklahoma in the Scripps National Spelling Bee on June 1-2, 2011.  Good luck, Parker!

And who knows, since Piedmont is in Elliot's mission, just outside Oklahoma City, Elliot and Parker may cross paths someday.

  1. I was just catching up on the Elder Adair blog and it sounds like I missed some controversial stuff (darn it)! It's so good to hear about the lessons he's learning and teaching, too. You've got a good kid!
