Local schools do well at Beta competition

Last weekend proved to be quite successful for Daviess County students at the Indiana State Beta Convention held in Indianapolis. All four area high schools were represented in the two-day long event.

Washington Catholic’s 53 Betas brought home five first place awards, eight second places, and four third places in artistic categories that included commercial graphics, drafting and design, mixed media, charcoal drawings, fabric crafts, watercolor paintings, photography, jewelry, acrylic paintings, and sculpture.

“The arts have always been a big thing for us,” said Washington Catholic Principal Karey Craney. “We’ve been known to sweep the categories. Mrs. Carrico has been a real asset to the kids.”

First place finishes were earned by Matt Fisher (commercial graphics, computer art), Nik O’Brian (drafting/design, computer drawn), Rachel May (fabric arts), Eric Zipperle (watercolor), and Hayley Fields (metal sculpture).

Second places were recorded by Austin Taylor (drafting/design, computer drawn), Marisa Bradley (charcoal), Uma Patel (mixed media), Claire Burch (watercolors), John Buchanan (photography/color), Brandon Strange (jewelry), Jasmine Patel (acrylics), and Elizabeth Perkins (photography/ black and white).

Third places went to Brody Wilson (drafting/design, computer drawn), Annie Buckley (charcoal), Brian Brown (watercolors), and Megan LaGrange (jewelry).

Washington Catholic chapter President May also won the oratory competition. May’s speech “Never Give Up” earned a standing ovation by the third and final general session audience during the awards presentation and officer installation ceremony. In June, May will be making her second trip to the national convention held in Richmond, Va. During the officer installation ceremony, Fisher was declared the new state president of Beta. This will mark the second consecutive year that a Washington Catholic student has been named the state president. Sam Baker, the outgoing state president, had the honor of announcing Fisher’s successful campaign. Gracen Jarrett served as Fisher’s campaign manager. Fisher’s campaign booth was also awarded second place.
