Person first won the bee as a 5th grader, then again last year. He will lead a team of three other finalists to the state bee on March 23. The state winner advances to the national bee in Washington D.C. The bee was sponsored by Lee Newspapers with Peter Christian as the very nervous first-time pronouncer.
