CRUM - Students in the Crum PreK-8 BETA Club recently participated in the National BETA Convention in Savannah, Georgia.

Wayne County was represented by Crum students Rylan Perry, Bella Ferguson, Brooklyn Wallace and Kamryn Messer at the conference.

The group of students set a new level of success for the county by placing in the top ten in four of the competitions at the convention. West Virginia has only been invited to participate at the National BETA Convention for the past four years.

This year, Crum PK-8 students captured the following awards at the conference:

Third place in the service award and fourth grader Rylan Perry placed fourth in Recyclable Art, seventh in Language Arts, and seventh in Black & White Photography.

The Crum PK-8 Group also competed in Division I Book Battle, Fiber Arts Competition, Handmade Jewelry, Pastels & Charcoal and a new competition called, “Site Up.”

“Our group had a wonderful time at the convention and had the opportunity to show once again the talent in Wayne County Schools.” Crum Pk-8 BETA sponsor Victory Ramey said. “We relish the opportunity to represent all of West Virginia BETA at the national level.”

The group was also joined by sponsors Vicky and Elias Perry on the trip.

They would like to thank all the Crum Pk-8 BETA supporters and the Wayne County Board of Education for their support in making the trip possible.
