LUMBERTON — A Littlefield Middle School walked away with a statewide leadership role at the 26th annual North Carolina Junior Beta Club Convention.
Jasmine Corbie won the office of NC Junior Beta vice president for 2018-2019 over five other candidates during the convention that took place Feb. 4 to Feb. 6 in Greensboro. Her campaign included a two-minute speech about investing in her vision of teamwork for Beta Club.
Students from all over the state competed in such competitions as visual arts, essay, T-shirt design, public speaking, Quiz Bowl, living literature, and many others.
