It’s January 31st and that means it’s finally here – the OnPoint Community Credit Union Celebrity Spelling Bee! Here’s a final look into the local celebrities who will be taking the stage tonight in hopes of becoming Portland’s next Spelling Champion.
Reggie Aqui, whose own brother calls him “The Reg”, wanted to be dolphin trainer/Disney imagineer as a kid. He is terrified of spelling the word vacuum, once sang for Dolly Parton, and is surprised he survived shop class in high school with all his fingers intact. Reggie’s favorite teachers include Mrs. Wong-Kam, who held his hand in Kindergarden, and Regina Robbins, his 11th grade English teacher who introduced him to Holden Caulfield.
Kyra Bussanich, a winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, actually was voted most likely to become famous in her yearbook. Kyra admits her favorite subject in school was probably lunch (and then maybe english), and recognizes her 8th and 9th grade teacher Lloyd Dilbeck, as her favorite educator. She has met Dr. Or and had a coffee with Superman, so the other celebs may want to watch out! Find out more at cravebakeshop.com
Candace Bouchard won her school’s 5th grade Spelling Bee and is looking forward to some friendly trash talk at this year’s Bee. She tells us that her favorite supply is those fine point pens, which make her very happy, and that rubber cement was “some pretty amazing stuff.” A fan of english and math in school, she always knew she wanted to be a ballet star, and want to thank her favorite teacher Ms. Shrek, who always expected more from her students.
Dave Dahl has had quite a journey in his life and says that cutting class was among his favorite activities when we was in school. Killer Dave tells us that if he had become a teacher, music would have been what he taught. Dave loves cats, is a huge Blazers fan, and promises this year to “come out swinging” to capture the spelling title. Learn more about Dave at www.daveskillerbread.com
