    Spelling His Way To Success

    San Diego County has its participant for the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D-C later this spring. And the word that got him there: Nexus.

    "Nexus, n-e-x-u-s, nexus" said Alex Kahng.

    With that correct spelling, followed by applause, Kahng won the 41st annual countywide spelling bee. 

    Alex attends Earl Warren Middle School in Solana Beach. 

    About 85 middle schoolers participated at the Old Town Theater. 

    You may recall five years ago, a Poway student won the national bee and later went on to win the "Jeopardy!" Teen Tournament.
