Windermere Preparatory School issued the following announcement on Jan. 18.
Mastering words like juxtapose, obsidian and insipid, our 2019 Spelling Bee Finalists were impressive. We crowned 8th grader Maia Munoz as this year's champion who, along with runner-up Andrea Matos Devesa, will go on to represent WPS at the Orange County Private School Spelling Bee next month.
