Beta Club seeks donations for nationals after success at state

CMHS Beta Club

The Chiefland High School Senior Beta Club, with encouragement from Beta sponsor Stacy Drummond and chaperone Jan Flemming, sent twelve members to Orlando in January for the Florida Senior State Beta Convention, and came away with four awards, including a pair of state championships by sophomore Reagan Hudson and a couple of top-3 honors in team competitions.

The club is now seeking funds through GoFundMe to support a trip to the National Beta Convention in June in Savannah, Georgia.

The state convention features students from all over Florida competing in numerous competitions, ranging from purely academic to talent oriented.

Hudson competed in individual competitions, which tests students’ knowledge on different academic subjects, in Agriculture and Science, and placed first in both.
