The Walker Valley Beta Club attended the state convention in Nashville,TN on November 18-20 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. The group consisted of 34 members, 3 sponsors, and 1 parent, one of biggest groups that has ever participated. While there, they attended leadership sessions and competed in competitions in talent, all academic subjects, quiz bowl, visual arts, advertising, and banner. Alayna Tweed and Alex Smith performed a contemporary ballet piece and qualified for finals, which included the top 8 out of 39 acts. Two groups placed 1st in the state in their respective competitions. Traegan Gober, Mason Cross, Blake Campbell, and Alex King participated in Fresh Look at Beta; this activity involves a team of four freshmen who take a written quiz on the history of the Beta Club and then write an essay on leadership and character. Next, Matthew Stuckey, Brandon Solsbee, Jake Smith, and Bailey Mullett competed in BETA Build, which consists of a 4 member team who builds a 5 step Rube Goldberg project with various materials that they were able to bring with them. Both groups received a plaque and an invitation to compete at the Beta Club national convention in Orlando in June. The club is planning on going if enough funds are accrued.
