Center Middle School Beta Club places at National competition

The Center Middle School Beta Club attended the National Convention on June 25th-June 29th in Nashville, TN. While there, the students had the opportunity to compete with students from other Beta Club organizations from around the country.  One of the CMS Beta Club sponsors, Mrs. Mary Hockenberry, said, "This has been our most successfu Beta year ever. As far as I know, we've never had any students place at Nationals." CMS had several students to place this summer. Keelan Williams placed Second in the handmade jewelry division. Both the *Spotlight Your Club* and *Living Literature *placed in the top ten as well.

Not only was it one of the most successful years for the CMS Beta Club, it was also one of the most memorable. The students were able to visit some amazing and very well known historical and fun sites. Some of the places they visited were the National Civil Rights Museum where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, Graceland--home of Elvis Presley in Memphis,
TN., the Grand Ole Opry, the Historic Ryman Auditorium, RCA Studio B, a full scale replica of the Parthenon (seen in the movie *Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief*), Hard Rock Cafe, and the Bluebird Cafe where several famous artists, such as Taylor Swift have been discovered.

The CMS Beta Club Members and Sponsors are so excited to have had this opportunity for the second year in a row. They would once again like to thank the Center ISD Board of Trustees for helping with travel expenses, Covington Lumber Company for donating supplies for the Living Literature set, Robbie Sullivan for assisting with Uhaul rental, and Matt Haddox,
Terry Scull and Rickey Andrews for construction of the Living Literature set.
​They look forward to another great year in 2015-16!​
