Tucson Middle School Student Qualifies for National Spelling Bee

Bobby Deyoe, a seventh grade student at Calvary Chapel Christian School, is representing Tucson in the annual ACSI National Spelling Bee on May 3rd in Dallas, Texas.

    TUCSON, AZ, April 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the only qualifier from Tucson, Bobby hopes to represent his school, his church and his community at the National's in a way that reflects all that God has done in his life.

A very gifted young man, Bobby has been a spelling whiz from an early age. He began reading 2nd grade level books at age 2 and by Kindergarten his reading level was "off the charts". By the time he was in second grade, Bobby was double promoted to the fourth grade class at Calvary Chapel Christian School.

With several spelling bee class wins under his belt and a District win last year in the sixth grade, Bobby has proven to be a spelling genius. This year he took first place in his class and then proceeded to place first in the District, which sent him to the Rocky Mountain State Regionals where he finished in the top 3. This streak of spelling successes has qualified Bobby for the ACSI Nationals.

Bobby's parents, Bob and Jennifer Deyoe are seeking support from the Tucson community to help cover the traveling expenses of attending the National Spelling Bee in Dallas, TX. To support the Deyoe family, please visit their fundraising page : where you can make a secure online contribution to Calvary Chapel Christian School on behalf of Bobby to help send him and his proud parents to Nationals.
