Reporter's notebook: Two for the Bee


March 22, 2018

Clovis will have two representatives at this year’s New Mexico Spelling Bee taking place on Saturday at Sandia Preparatory School in Albuquerque.

Zia Elementary fourth-grader Jaxon Bender and Yucca Middle School eighth-grader Jorge Barraza earned their spots in the statewide competition during the Clovis district spelling bee held on Jan. 19.

Jaxon finished second by correctly spelling “panegyric” and Jorge finished first with the word “mizzle.”

Saturday’s spelling bee kicks off at 9 a.m., is open to the public and free to attend.
