DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham school officials presented a bicycle as a surprise Monday to a spelling bee winner who is headed to the national competition in June.

Frank Dumas, a fourth-grader who attends Bethesda Elementary School, is the spelling be champ for Durham Public Schools, the school district said in a news release.

Dr. Pascal Mubenga, the superintendent of the district, showed up at the school Monday morning with a new mountain bike for Frank “for his hard work,” officials said.

Principal Shaneeka Moore-Lawrence was also there when Frank “received quite the surprise,” according to the news release.

Frank is set to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee on June 2.
