HARRELLS – Harrells Christian Academy’s Senior Beta Club recently attended the North Carolina Beta Convention in Greensboro from January 27-28 where they competed with other Betas in grades 9-12 from throughout the state. Students participated in academic and artistic events ranging from individual to large group competitions. This year’s Beta theme, Power of Beta, was incorporated into many of the projects and performances.

“I could not have asked for a better group of young people with which to work. I am so proud of their hard work and dedication. They inspire me,” says HCA Sr. Beta Club Sponsor Ruth Ann Parker.

This year, 33 HCA Senior Betas in grades 9-12 traveled to Greensboro. Those students represented the school and community exceptionally well, placing in the top 5 in the state in 19 different competitions. Four of those honors were first place wins. HCA Sr. Betas who placed in the top 5 in both individual and team state competitions are eligible to represent the school at the National Senior Beta Convention in Louisville, Kentucky from June 17-20.
