Junior Beta is an academic organization with members in the fifth and sixth grade at B.V.E.S. The members are required to maintain a 3.2 GPA during their 2 years in the Jr. Beta club. We work hard at setting a good example for our peers and to be helpful in our community. The Jr. Beta motto is “Let us to live by serving others!” The Jr. Beta club strives to stay true to this motto each and every day. We attend the yearly Louisiana State Beta Convention at the Cajun Dome in Lafayette. La. At the convention our Betas have the opportunity to meet and become friends with over 12,000 Betas in the state of Louisiana. The Jr. Beta Club sponsors are Mrs. Kellie Dykes and Ms. Ashley Laughlin. We appreciate all of the assistance we receive from Mrs. Cathy Bourgeois, Mrs. Tammy Goodman, and ALL the great Beta parents.
