Junior Beta Club members at Black Fox Elementary School will represent the state of Tennessee in a national competition in Fort Worth, Texas.
Black Fox Elementary School Junior Beta Club attended the State Beta Club convention at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville at the end of November. Junior Beta Club sponsor Amber Winters said they had some students “do very well in their competitions” as they went head-to-head against more than 8,000 students.
“The competition is fierce at this convention,” she said.
The Beta Club’s purpose is to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, leadership and service among students, Winters said.
Lilly Winters, a fifth-grader at Black Fox, won first place in the Special Talent category after singing the song “Champion” by Carrie Underwood.
A group of fifth-grade students — including Stella Lamon, Hallie Rymer, Samantha Haynie and MJ Barnett — won fourth place in the Group Talent category when they sang and danced to “When Somebody Loved Me” from the movie “Toy Story 2.”
All four students will represent Tennessee and Black Fox Elementary in the National Convention later this year.
“We are incredibly proud and excited to see how everyone performs during the National Beta Club Convention in Fort Worth, Texas,” Winters said.
The convention was originally scheduled for June, but the National Beta Club Association had to make a “difficult decision” and cancel the event.
Still, Black Fox’s Junior Beta Club will represent their school and state during the virtual competition. The National Beta Club Association announced details regarding a Virtual National Convention will be made available to sponsors on May 8 and the convention registration deadline will be extended to May 29.
