In a surprise visit to Canfield Village Middle School last week, two champion spellers had a chance meeting. Anoop Bal, Canfield’s 2004 Regional Spelling Bee champion ran across Max Lee, Canfield’s 2012 Spelling Bee champion. The two were checking out the recycling display at the school that include the characters from the Wizard of Oz, or in this case the Wizard of R’s (reduce, reuse and recycle). Most of the mannequins, or can-nequins, were made of recycled pop cans as part of a display in the running for a $25,000 national grant that will help resurface the track at the middle school. As for Bal and Lee, the conversation on Thursday turned to words and Bal told Lee he would give him a phone number if he ever wanted to talk spelling. Bal graduated in 2009 and presently attends the University of Oklahoma.
