Logan Beta Club members & WLHS team members Hayden McCloud, Rosey Gillette and Madison Haugen won for their video on COVID rebuidling at the state Beta Convention last week.



Logan High School Beta Club students won big time at the state Beta Convention last week.


Students from across the Mountain State competed in a range of events at the West Virginia Beta Convention on November Third and fourth. Competition categories included academics, the arts and engineering.


A school needed to place in the top three to qualify for the National Beta Convention in Nashville this summer. Logan Betas placed in 53 categories. Twenty of the categories received first placement.


One of the first-place winners is WLHS correspondent Rosey Gillette for a piece she and other WLHS team members produced for the Technology category.

The video clips through snapshots of the pandemic and what students have endured while the world was paused and the struggles of the modern student.

“We put together a video that just focused on rebuilding after a year of COVID and isolation,” Gillette said on Friday’s edition of What’s Your Opinion. “And really coming together and highlighting that you can’t hold down a Wildcat. We’re always going to come back stronger than we were before.”


Gillette produce the video alongside students Hayden McCloud and Madison Haugen.


The National Beta Club's motto is "let us lead by serving others,” and the national club is going to do just that. The video will be available on their website as an example of what betas should strive for.

Logan also had a student win the State Presidency. Raylee Sipple is Logan High's third consecutive win as Beta State President. Her tenure of office begins July 1, 2022.


The Logan High Beta Club is seeking donations to defer the cost of attending the National Convention.


Donations can be made to Logan High School Beta Club and mailed to the high school at: One Wildcat Way, Logan WV 25601 or dropped off at the school. All donations are welcome and appreciated.
