Jr. Beta Club Attends State Convention

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.
