Local Student Attends National Beta Leadership Camp

Madeline Peterson

Madeline Peterson, an 8th grader at Southern Middle School, joined over 170 of her peers from all over the country in Greeneville, TN for the National Beta Junior Leadership Camp. Elementary and middle school Beta members from across the nation gathered for leadership training. Members spent the week working alongside nationally-recognized speakers and National Beta staff in a variety of leadership and team-building activities and adventures. Members also participated in leadership challenges, spent time working on curriculum, and participated in the team challenge at the end of the week. Madeline has shown true leadership skills as she worked her way through the week's events.

"I am so glad that I got to experience this amazing camp filled with such wonderful people," she stated.

Madeline is the daughter of Michael and Julie Peterson of Nancy. She will be serving as Southern Middle's Beta Club President this year.
