CLERMONT - Students from Bernheim Middle School spent a week over the summer displaying their skills during the National Junior Beta Club Convention in Orlando, Fla.

This was the fourth year that students from Bernheim Middle represented the school and the county.

Alex Skidmore, currently an eighth-grader at Bernheim, entered her crocheted baby blanket, which won third place at the state competition.

Crystal Lemons, who is now a freshman at Bullitt Central High, won third place in the nationals with her wreath. During the state competition, Lemons placed second.

The club’s T-shirt, which placed third in the state, won fourth place in the national competition.

It was created by Tiffany Allen, who is now a freshman at Bullitt Central.

Nathan Hall was selected as the state’s secretary in March and finished runner-up as the national secretary to the candidate from Tennessee. He is currently an eighth grader at Bernheim.

Under the guidance of Jennifer Harrison, the Bernheim Junior Beta Club has grown in numbers over past eight years.

In its first year of attending the national convention in Greensboro, N.C., only one student competed.

This year, that number grew to seven and all had a great experience.

Torie Lloyd, Kaila Moore and Crystal Lemons are all freshmen at Bullitt Central this year.

Nathan Hall, Alex Skidmore, Martha Brand and Kyler Hart are eighth graders at  Bernheim this year.

Thanks to First Federal Savings Bank in the Cedar Grove Business Park, Lee and Marshall Insurance, Peoples Bank of Bullitt County and Bullitt County Farm Bureau for their sponsorships to make the trip to the national convention possible.
