I recently came across this interview with the 2007 National Spelling Bee champion Evan O’Dorney, who happens to have been homeschooled. This is a great advertisement for homeschooling and this kid deserves some sort of award, like spokesman of the year. Apparently the kid has a black belt in Karate as well, no doubt learned from a book and tested by his mother. So, very smart, Spelling Bee champion, black belt, socially graceful and also apparently quite the lady killer (checking to see if his mother meant that literally) – the complete package!
