Bleckley County High School students were among over 8,000 attendees at the National Beta Club Convention held June 17-20 in Savannah. The convention served as a place for showcasing talents and academic abilities. It was also an opportunity for Bleckley Beta members to enhance leadership skills, share service ideas, and make friends with other students as they competed.

Students who qualified in their events at the state convention held in January competed at nationals. Bleckley had competitors in nine events. Though three did not make to the stage, congratulations are in order for their hard work.

The Living Literature team portrayed a story familiar to BCHS, Seussical.


The Robotics team consisted of: Louie Lumley, Jr., Evan Thomas, Tucker Felkins, Ben DeLoach, Donald Warren, and Nick Warren. Madison Arnold made a Technology Service Project Video. The Living Literature Team was: Abigail Belflower, Miranda Belflower, Abbie Carr, Regan Cole, Skyler Johnson, Bailey Knighton, MaKenzie Leatherwood, Tori Little, Noah Paradis, Carlie Peavy, Josh Trice, and Meri Kait Smith.
