West High students compete at National Beta convention

Eight West High students competed in the National Senior Beta Club in Oklahoma City last week.

Eight students from Morristown-Hamblen High School West went to Oklahoma City last week to participate in the National Senior Beta Club which ended Saturday.

Logan Davis placed seventh in the nation in math. Chloe Livesay, who had previously been named a Tennessee Leadership State Representative, went through a three-hour long interview process, but came up short on her bid to become a National Leadership Representative, school officials said.

More than 20,000 people attended the four-day conference, which began Wednesday. West High School students left for Oklahoma City last Tuesday.

The National Beta Club is the largest independent, non-profit educational youth organization in America. For more than 80 years, it has prepared today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders. Its mission statement is “to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.”

Students who participated were:

• Jackson Neill

• Chloe Livesay

• Mary Hannah Statzer
