Alpine Crest Elementary Beta ClubAlpine Crest Elementary’s Beta Club is leading by example for their school and community. Most recently, the club was able to participate in the 4th Annual Elementary Beta Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Conference Center in Nashville, TN. The group made their school proud, by showcasing their talents and working together as a team.

The Jr. Beta Club is a national organization and service club that recognizes outstanding achievement and strong moral character. The students at Alpine Crest embody these attributes and were all nominated by their teachers and faculty members for entrance into the club. They have spent the year working on numerous service projects and preparing for the convention. This included working on academic challenges in science, math, language arts, poetry, speech, and creative writing. They also worked on artistic projects. This hard work earned them second place in the elementary school quiz bowl.

Fifth-grader Hayden Mason was excited about the win saying, “It was fun! Especially because we would help each other with different questions!”

Other awards earned by the school include fifth-grader Ashlynn DeWitt earning fourth place for Jewelry Creation, and fifth-grader Caroline Wiloughby earning second place for Drawing. Caroline shared her experience saying, “I’m really thankful I got to go, it was a blast!” Along with the rest of the Alpine students, she was thrilled about their recent win and the fun time she got to spend with the rest of the club members.

Exceptional Education Teacher Lisa Millard went with the students as their teacher representative and could not be more thrilled about their experience, “It really bonded them as a group, so whenever we get together to do service projects, they are all on one page with each other.”

The students won’t have to wait too long for another opportunity to work together, as they will soon be going to another Elementary Beta Club Conference in Gatlinburg, TN, on March 9.

Along with the competitions and conferences, the club has also made their mark with many services projects and volunteer works in the community. Earlier in February, the group helped their school donate 300 pet items to the humane society. They also went to the humane center to read books to the animals. They will be summarizing these projects and highlighting them at their next competition. HCS wishes them luck and congratulates them on a job well done! We look forward to seeing these talented students grow and create opportunities by design!
