On Friday, students from both middle schools in Washington County attended the National BETA Club’s Florida State Convention, where many of them won top prizes.
Five first-place prizes, four second-place awards, and three third-place honours were won by Vernon Middle School students.
“We are really pleased with these students’ achievements! They did a good job of repping Vernon Middle School “Friday afternoon, the school posted on Facebook.
Four first-place finishes and three second-place finishes were the students’ final results from Roulhac Middle School.
