Centre Middle School Beta Club performs, earns honors at State Beta Convention
Centre Middle School Eighth Grade Beta Club members attended the Alabama State Beta Convention in Mobile, Ala. in March. The theme for the convention was “Beta… A Volunteer State of Mind!”
Many of the students competed in various competitions.
The Arts and Crafts participants and categories were: Claire Chesnut, black and white photography; Katie Ledbetter, color photography and sketching; Johnna Ragan, sketching and watercolor; Baylee Morris, oils/acrylics; Taylor Lowe, sculpture, wreath, and painted pottery; and Jenna Locklear, hand-made jewelry.

The Quiz Bowl team included Claire Chesnut, J.T. Hill, Ashley Stinson, and Trenton Edwards.
The Poster team included Lauren Griffin, Amanda Holcomb, Sammy Kidd, and Mindy McMichen.
All Club members participated and helped with the banner, scrapbook, t-shirt design, and songfest.
The songfest competition required members to use the tune of a popular song and change the words to fit the Beta Club theme.
The members wrote a song about helping others to the tune of “We Got the Beat” by the GoGos. The song was called “We’re Beta”.
Out of 38 clubs, the CMS Beta Club was selected as one of only eight to perform at the State Convention.
