PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

For one student spelling words is easy. In fact he's a state champion when it comes to spelling.

Jackson Parker is a student at Paragould Junior High School.

Parker has won the Arkansas State Spelling Bee and is headed to the National Spelling Bee.

“First I won the classroom bee and then I won the school bee, county bee and then I went to state,” said Parker.

Parker will go on to compete in the National Spelling Bee at the end of May against 270 other competitors.
