Greene County Jr. Beta Club members virtually showed out for this year’s state Beta convention, and many of them are moving on the national convention which will be later this summer in Disney World.

Leakesville Junior High School and Sand Hill School Beta Club members all worked hard to prepare their skits, talents and campaign videos, and several students spent a lot of time preparing for their academic tests taken online. Several students from both schools will be advancing to national level.

One of those members is LJHS’s Brody Jones, who won his bid for State Vice President for Beta. Other LJHS state Beta convention winners are:

Sand Hill School Beta sponsor, Mrs. Kristy Nicholson, says “I am so proud of all our Beta students who participated in the State Convention.  We have such talented students at Sand Hill School and this is one way they can showcase their abilities.  I enjoy working with our students and their parents to provide them opportunities to shine!

Sand Hill School Beta students are continuing to “lead by serving others” as they plan their next project.  Beta will be hosting a blood drive on Monday, May 3rd from 2:00-7:30 in the gym.  Please contact the school or email the sponsor ([email protected]) to make an appointment to donate blood.  You can also schedule an appointment online through the Vitalant website.
