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.

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”.
