Elite 8 warm ups! Go Bulldogs
JGS Betas had a great time at the Illinois Junior Beta Convention in Springfield. All of our Betas did a great job representing JGS! Our club received the G.O.L.D. Key Award for 10% growth in Convention attendance. Kaitlyn Sullivan placed 2nd in Pottery, and Seth Cochran placed 3rd in Social Studies. Our 8th grade Betas (Blake Abernathy, Mackenzie Barnhart, Emma Craig, Hannah Hale, Elizabeth Hill, Kinley Leek, Brooke Sheffer, Mackenzie Turner, and Haydyn Williamson) qualified for Nationals at Leadership Summit last fall in two team competitions: Lead Outside the Box and Collaboration Connection.

Anyone older (grades 7&8) has the option to come to any time available. Don’t feel discouraged not to come if you did make the junior high team or decided not to try out, you do not have to be on the team to attend this open gym.
