    ACP-Erie Student Wins State Spelling Bee

    Marcus Behling, an eighth grader at ACP-Erie, will represent Arizona in the 88th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. May 24-29. Marcus won the state spelling bee on March 21, correctly spelling the word "frankincense” (which had been incorrectly spelled by the other finalist) and then correctly spelling “barometer" to take home the win.

    Marcus follows in his brother’s footsteps. Mitchell Behling won the state bee in 2011. Mitchell is currently a senior at Chandler High.
