SLES at the National Beta Convention

A few SLES qualifiers for the National Beta Convention headed to Nashville in June to compete in academics, apparel design, engineering, marketing, performance art, and visual art! Our SLES Betas faced off against all other state qualifiers across the country, pulling from the top 100 Beta Clubs in the United States. Throughout the convention, our students lived the Beta mission statement of academic achievement, character, service and leadership – even during the fast-paced, competitive scavenger hunt. 

Our students put forth a great effort, surpassing several personal goals — and even took home an award! Eleanor R. placed 8th overall in Academics for Math! 

It was a great experience for everyone (even parents!) and was inspirational to see all of these young leaders from all over the country — especially those from South Loop Elementary.
Great job, Betas!
