Two local students and their word coaches have been preparing for the Hampton Roads Regional Spelling Bee (the "Bee Battle") to be held Saturday at Fort Monroe in Hampton.

Connie Warner, library assistant at Peasley Middle School and a volunteer with Adult Literacy, has been working with Jeffrey Cho, a seventh grader at Peasley, who is returning to the regional bee for the second consecutive year. This team has met weekly to prepare.
