2016 KY BETA Convention Success

From FCHS BETA Club Sponsors Adam Hyatt and Kathy Parritt,

"The FCHS Beta Club achieved considerable success at our annual convention on January 26th and 27th. Our students participated in a variety of academic, performance, and arts competitions and achieved numerous victories over many of the top students in the state of KY. In academic competitions, Christian Thompson placed first on the agriculture test for the Freshman/Sophomore division, Rishabh Kapoor placed first on the science test for the Freshman/Sophomore division, Jacob Bruce placed first on the social studies test for the Junior/Senior division, Delyla Oldham placed first on the French test, and Andrea Patino placed first on the Spanish test. In performance competition, Hallie Nofstger, McKenna Morgan, Josie Thacker, and Lexie Moore placed first in the advertising design competition. Each of these six first place finishes gave the FCHS Beta Club points in the overall convention sweepstakes competition that allowed us to win that competition and leave convention with the award for the top performing club in the state. In addition to these awards, Katherine Centers also received a third place ribbon for her entry into the woodworking craft competition. While our candidate for president, Taylor Mauer, did not win the campaign, she did an excellent job with her speech and represented the school very well. Many of our students participated in the skit supporting Taylor’s campaign and executed it very well. A service project to create blankets for patients at Kosair Children’s Hospital went on during the convention, and, according to Mr. Marshall, our students outnumbered all other clubs in participating in this project. Ben Bennett did a wonderful job in his position as state Vice President in leading convention meetings and presented an inspiring speech that challenged all of the students to consider their purpose and to pursue something greater than themselves. All told, we had an excellent convention with numerous successes and no problems. As sponsors, Mrs. Parritt and I would like to thank you for allowing these students to attend the convention. We would also like to thank Ms. Cartier, Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Tudor, Mr. Baker, and Mr. Marshall for helping us chaperone the convention and making it possible for us to take such good group."
