TULSA - 2 Works for You is a proud partner in bringing the Scripps Nation Spelling Bee to Green Country. For one Tulsa family, spelling seems to run in the family.

Rayleigh Henson won Sunday's spelling bee at Carnegie Elementary, but the Henson family says the spelling bee is nothing new.

Rayleigh's father, Trevor Henson, also competed in the bee 18 years ago. "I don't think dad had anything to do with it. I think she worked hard and put some time in."

Henson will now move on to the regional bee in March.
