North Adams Beta Club excels at State Convention

This group of North Adams High School Beta Club members placed second in the Character Skit competition.

By Kelly Boerger, NAHS Beta Advisor – 

Every spring, the National Beta Club hosts a state convention in Columbus. During the convention, hundreds of Beta members from around the state of Ohio compete in various competitions that range from academic tests to visual arts to displaying various talents such as acting, singing, and creating inventions.

In the Living Literature competition, this scene from “Peter and the Starcatchers” earned a second place finish for the NAHS Beta Club.

The NAHS Beta club also ran a candidate, Adison Wright, for State Office. She was voted by her peers to be the next State President which means she will travel to other states conventions and preside over our State Beta Club Convention for the next year. (See the April 2 issue of The People’s Defender.)

This group of young ladies took First Place in the Banner Competition at the recent state Beta Convention in Columbus.

After the convention, club members were able to enjoy a guided tour of the Ohio Statehouse, learning about the history of our state government and seeing first hand where Ohio bills become laws.
The North Adams Beta Club will be taking 40 club members plus chaperones to Disney World for the National Convention in June. They are currently trying to raise funds to help support these students in their quest to compete at a national level.
Anyone willing to make a small donation to help support this endeavor
is asked to send it to North Adams HS, c/o Kelly Boerger, 96 Green Devil Drive, Seaman, OH 45679
