Seven was the magic number for Devin Lowery.
The Buford Middle School student wore No. 7 in this year’s district spelling bee and captured the championship in the seventh round.
But Lowery believes his win is due to experience more than luck.
Lowery, an eighth-grader, was one of 15 students who participated in the annual Lancaster County School District spelling bee, held Feb. 9 at Bundy Auditorium inside the Bradley Arts and Sciences Building at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.
