Davis Middle School student Parker Ramey has done it again.

Parker, a sixth-grader who won the Hall County Spelling Bee this year and last, took second place in the district spelling bee competition Saturday in Gwinnett County, according to Hall County schools spokesman Gordon Higgins.

Parker will go on to compete in the state spelling bee on March 20 at Georgia State University.

Creekland Middle School seventh-grader Angela Mo took the district title when she correctly spelled "euploid" after Parker misspelled it.

Angela bagged the district title by spelling "idiopathy."

Parker is the son of Jones Elementary School Principal Hank Ramey and won this year’s Hall County bee on Feb. 10 with the word "renegade." He took home the county trophy last year for the word "aristocracy."

Parker says he dreams of participating in the national spelling bee in Washington, D.C., by the end of middle school.
