Brihasa Veduru Advances to National Spelling Bee

Bear Creek Intermediate fifth-grader Brihasa Veduru won the Texas Christian University Scripps Regional Spelling Bee on March 7 to earn a spot in the Scripps National Bee.

Going up against the best spellers in the region at TCU for 17 rounds, Veduru emerged as the champion, successfully spelling "folate." Among words, she had to conquer along the way were "aphasia" and "ferruginous." 

Veduru earned a spot in the Regional Bee after winning the BCI Spelling Bee as well as the Keller ISD Bee. She will represent Keller ISD and the TCU Region as she competes in the National Spelling Bee, set for May 28 in Washington, D.C. 

Congratulations, Brihasa, and good luck as you prepare for Nationals!
