On February 6 and 7 approximately 50 Rockingham County Middle School (RCMS)
students attended the NC Jr. Beta Club Convention at the Sheraton Four
Seasons Hotel and Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. The mission of
this convention is to allow students opportunities to showcase their
academic achievement, artistic creativity, critical thinking skills,
collaborative team work, and to increase student leadership. This
year’s convention theme, “Beta: Above and Beyond”, challenged all
participants to “achieve more, serve more, and lead more, thus exceeding
beyond all expectations”. While at the convention, RCMS students participated in numerous competitive events
including living literature, photography, art, advertising, technology,
Quiz Bowl, T-Shirt design, special talent, and Book Battle. Haley
Sinclair and Sophie Wood won the special talent category with their song
and dance program and will advance to the National Jr. Beta Convention
to be held June 25-28 at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort
in Orlando, FL. RCMS Beta Club sponsors are Kristen Perkinson and Jennifer Rakestraw.
