On Saturday November 12th, 2016, the John L. Ory Jr. BETA Club ventured off to R.K. Smith Middle School for BETA District Day!  The John L. Ory BETA Club consists of 53 members and 3 sponsors.   42 of the 53 members went on this trip along with two sponsors, Mrs.Bailey and Mrs.Bourgeois, and 1 chaperone, Mrs.Bridget.  District day for BETAS is a day in which all the BETAS of your certain district get together and compete in academic activities.  Some of the activities include Tower of Power, Banner, Spotlight Your Club, Robotics, Group Talent, Speech, Book Battle, Special Talent, and Quiz Bowl.  This day is about as long as a school day and takes a while to plan for.  Getting our supplies ready took about two months in order for everything to be completely ready for competition.

Competition went well for our club Logan Klibert placed 1st in division 1 Speech.  Charlee Palma, Eric Mender, and Rosie Bourgeouis competed in Division 1 Book Battle and got 1st place.  Mason Jones, Kevin Harry, Isiah Wingard, Luke Gilbert, Javier Dantin, Morgan Lawhorne, and Eviline Middkiff competed Robotics and placed 2nd.  Alissa Stutzman and Jada Brown placed 3rd in Special Talent.  Jaiden Reed, Emma Savage, and Haleigh Hudson placed 3rd in division 2 Book Battle.  Micheal Reeves, Oliveah Fernandez, Tobre Takpor, Cali Boudreaux, and Tora Butler competed in Quiz Bowl and earned 4th place.  Adison Cooper, Victoria Gutierrez, Megan Remondet, and Tr’Najah Smith placed 5th in Spotlight Your Club.
