OKLAHOMA CITY — Several more Richmond County students have won awards, this time at the Beta Club National Senior Convention.

Kirsten McDonald, a student at the Richmond Ninth Grade Academy, placed first in the Recyclable Art category.

Her piece, “Rusty the Turkey,” is made of old metals — including old blades, railroad spikes and a propane tank — that she welded together, according to the entry’s identification tag.

The Richmond Senior High School Quiz Bowl Team — Adam Tatum, Trey Singleton, Ariel Spooner and Jenna Kubiak — placed seventh in the national competition.

There are more events scheduled for later in the convention, which runs June 19-22 at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

At the Junior National Convention, which ended Tuesday, the Hamlet Middle School Beta Club brought home third place in Technology, eighth in 2-D Design and ninth in the Quiz Bowl.

Adam Tatum, Trey Singleton, Ariel Spooner and Jenna Kubiak placed seventh in the Quiz Bowl competition.
