LOGAN, W.Va. — Logan High School Beta Club sponsors Dionne Bartley and Jason McPeak chaperoned more than 40 Beta members who attended the annual state Beta convention held November 9-10 at the Charleston Civic Center. At the convention, students competed in a plethora of categories from academics, visual arts, performing arts, and leadership.
LHS competed against schools with seasoned competitors from across the state. Although this is only Logan High’s second year as a chartered club, students did very well in the competitions. LHS had 20 students collectively who placed in the individual and group competitions. These students are now eligible to compete at the National Convention in Orlando, Florida in June 2017.
Student winners are as follows:
Hadiya Bartley – Elected as State Vice-President of Beta Club
Kaileah Williams – Agriculture: 1st place, Division I
Daphney Akers – Math: 3rd place, Division I
Kaylee Hall – Science: 1st place, Division I

“This is not just a win for the Beta Club, this is a win for Logan High School,” McPeak said. “Our students did not get where they are without committed teachers who strive for excellence and want more for them.”
Competitions are a small part of the Beta Club. LHS Betas are excited to get to work in their school and community on various projects ranging from help for the homeless, visiting the elderly and sick children in area hospitals, and promoting healthy living here in our area, as well as helping to fight global issues.
