Morrison Elementary’s all-girl Beta Club engineering team placed seventh out of 56 teams at the National Beta Convention on June 14 in Savannah, Ga. The theme for this year’s competition was “A Voyage of Adventure." Addison Allen, Ella Aycock and Mollie Harris qualified to compete at the national level after securing first place at the Tennessee State Convention in Nashville back in November, 2023. The Morrison girls had a blast meeting hundreds of elementary-aged kids from around the nation, trading Beta club pins, and participating in various events.
