Gonzales Middle School Beta Club members attended the annual Beta Convention in Lafayette on Feb. 22-26.

This year’s theme was “Let the Beta Times Roll,” since the National Beta Convention will be held in New Orleans this summer.

During the convention, the students were able to compete in several academic competitions as well as the arts and crafts competitions. The students enjoyed being able to watch other schools from across Louisiana compete in different competitions, according to a release from the school.
