Congratulations Jr. Beta Club
Nineteen of Briarlake's Jr. Beta Club Members participated in the Jr. Beta Club State Convention November 29th - December 1st in Savannah, Ga.. Ms. Clishe' Thomas and Ms. Natasha Stansfield were the staff members that chaperoned the students. The trip was also made possible by eight of our parents that were willing to chaperone. Many thanks to Staci Beckwith, Jason Butler, Hiba Jaafar, Gretchen Waters, John Gerstle, Liberty Garcia, Ruta Haile, and Camille Smith! We would also like to thank Ava Waters' parents and Green Light Graphics & Design in Norcross for donating the beautiful banner that we were able to enter in one of the competitions (Eduardo Whittaker, owner, is also a Briarlake parent). All nineteen students participated in at least one competition. We applaud their competitive spirit! They all represented Briarlake very well!
