The annual Kentucky State Beta Convention took place in Louisville at the Galt House Hotel and the Kentucky International Convention Center on Feb. 24 and 25. There were more than 4,000 students in attendance at the convention. Students from all four LaRue County schools were represented at the state convention this year.


LaRue County Middle School had a record-setting 101 students attend the convention.

LCMS participated in numerous events at the convention. Students also launched a Scooby Doo based campaign to elect Maddie Lee as a state officer. Students performed their campaign skit on stage at the convention center and worked during the convention to secure the votes necessary for a state victory. 

The school was successful in getting Lee elected as the new state chaplin.  Students elected as state officers serve a one-year term in office. They will travel across the nation as ambassadors for Kentucky on the national level. 

Lee is slated to attend the Mississippi state convention in March, the Louisiana state convention in May and the South Carolina Broyhill Leadership Academy in July. She will represent not only LaRue County Schools but the entire state in her role as the newly elected state chaplin. The school also took a sixth place state rank in the songfest competition.

Teresa Lee and Allison McDowell serve as sponsors for the Beta Club at LCMS.

The National Beta Club is the oldest and largest academic organization for teens in America. The organization promotes leadership, student service projects and academic endeavors.
