Surprise! Welcome home national spelling bee champ

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – It was a huge welcome home surprise Wednesday night for San Diego's own national spelling bee champion.

Snigdha Nandipati has been on a media blitz since winning the top honors and now the Francis Parker eighth grader is back with family and friends.

Nandipati kept her cool as she outlasted opponent after opponent and aced her final test with a word she's seen before.

And Wednesday night, the people who've been behind her from the beginning got a chance to show her just how proud they are of her.

News 8's Marcella Lee was there for the big surprise and files this video report with all the details.
