COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) - A Mid-South student qualified for and competed in the 90th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Samuel Paul, an 8th-grade student from Memphis University School, advanced past the first round in the national competition.

He beat out hundreds of other qualifiers, but he did not advance to the round of 50.

None-the-less we want to congratulate Samuel on his hard work and amazing spelling success!
