Congratulations to Jesus Otero for winning first place in Charcoal Sketch on the national level of the Junior Beta Club. The competition was part of the National Junior Beta Convention held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee June 25-29. The Mary J. Ragston Chapter of Junior Beta from Hempstead Middle School earned the invitation to compete at the national level by placing in three events at the Texas Junior Beta Convention last February. Winning on the national level is quite an accomplishment and an honor for Hempstead Middle School.
