Boyds Creek Elementary School’s Junior Beta Club had a successful trip to the Tennessee Junior Beta Club Convention.  The club left for the Opryland Hotel in Nashville on Sunday, November 18th with sixty members competing in a variety of competitions.   Seventh grader Stetson Moore was elected State Beta Club Reporter and will now run for National Beta Club Reporter at the National Junior Beta Club Convention held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this summer.  Sixth grader Luke Wade placed first against sixty-four other delegates at convention in the category of special talent.  He played guitar and sang “Home” by Daughtry.  Luke will also compete in Myrtle Beach against other Beta Club members across the United States.  In early November the BCES Beta Club was notified that they had been chosen as a finalist for the Songfest competition.  Songfest is a club competition in which the club must choose a song and change all of the words to incorporate the convention theme “Beta…An Ocean of Opportunities.”  Laurel Robinson and Bethany Dreyer changed the lyrics to Kenny Chesney’s song “When the Sun Goes Down.”  Forty-Five club members were part of the Songfest group that performed at Convention and received first place out of over thirty schools statewide.  They also received an invitation to perform and compete in Songfest at the National Junior Beta Club Convention.  BCES Beta Club members Danielle DeToro, Mendy Maxwell, and Shelby Maxwell also earned second place in Banner and Aaron Fain won second place in Essay.  John Taylor was awarded third place in Speech Division I.  Beta Club sponsors Mrs. Carrie Wheeler, Mrs. Beverly Loveday, and Mrs. Stephanie Moore are extremely proud of the club and all of their accomplishments.  A lot of practice and hard work went in to the BCES Beta Club’s success.  Now they are looking forward to competing and campaigning at the National Junior Beta Club Convention this summer.
