Altha School Competes At State Beta Club Convention

On Saturday, April 18, a group of very weary juniors and seniors left the Altha School parking lot bound for the Senior Beta State Convention in Tampa, Florida. After an exhaustive prom the night before, the group was definitely looking forward to a break away from school. With the convention scheduled to begin Sunday evening, they took advantage of some free time Sunday morning and visited Busch Gardens. The theme for this year’s convention was “Lights! Camera! Beta! Scene 75.” This is the 75th year anniversary of the National Beta Club. On Sunday evening, the competitions began and continued again on Monday. Competing at the convention and how they placed were: Science-Jessica Smith Math-Caitlyn Bruner English-Brittany Stephens-3rd place and invitation to NATIONALS!!

This is the first group to attend a Senior Beta State Convention in over 20 years. They did an extremely great job representing their school and community and are ready to begin preparing for next year’s convention. Accompanying the group on the trip were sponsor, LeAnna Hall, and chaperone, Dottie Wiltse.
