Iann will now advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC in May. Thirty-five students representing middle schools from Penobscot County participated in this annual competition. Noah Coyle also represented the James F. Doughty School and placed fifth. Both students participated for the second year in a row.
