March 10, 2023

On the week of Feb. 9 a dozen Trojans headed to the 2023 Beta Convention. Each of the students who attended won in at least one competition. During this event, the Trojans managed to take home 20 top three spots and a VA BETA scholarship award. All students that attended the convention also qualified for nationals.

THS students headed to the convention.

“For me the trip was a very inspirational point of leadership. It shows a lot of leadership and how you can work together with others,” says sophomore Parker Sinclair.

“My favorite part about Beta is definitely the leadership. It really brings me out of my shell,” says sophomore Halle Cassada.
