ROCKINGHAM —Walt Disney World is known to many as the most magical place on Earth, and for the members of the Rockingham and Hamlet Middle School Beta Club, the magic was all around. With a bus full, students and advisors traveled earlier this week to Orlando, Florida to compete against 30 teams from across the nation.

The National Beta Club exists to encourage character, service, academic achievement, and leadership in elementary and secondary school students. Thousands of people were in attendance to show their support and encouragement as Hamlet Middle School shined with creativity by bringing home a first place finish in tee shirt design. Students of Rockingham Middle, Carter Richardson and Will Thompson both brought home a third place finish for their work in visual arts, as well as speech. Lauren Lutz was prepared to rise to the challenge as the Director of Songfest, a competition in which the club is required to rewrite a song that must be under three minutes, while incorporating the Beta Theme.

ROCKINGHAM —The Beta Club is not the only group that will have the chance to travel to compete for a national title. Kids are making a difference around the county this summer by using their time wisely to take advantage of various opportunities. Hitting the mats at end of July at The Orleans Arena, Fame 4 and Platinum Elite will both compete for national titles.
