    Meet Adam Bailey, 13, a seventh-grade student at A.R. Rucker Middle School in Lancaster.

    In his off-time, Baily is a Boy Scout in Troop 72, active in Second Baptist Youth, and like most teenagers, enjoys music. Favorite bands? The Strokes and, believe it or not, The Beatles.

    And, oh yeah, he’s also a great speller.
