Campbellsville Middle School students were recently honored at the Board of Education meeting on Monday, Feb. 12, for the recent academic successes.
CMS Principal Zach Lewis honored seventh-graders Haylee Allen, MaCayla Falls, Chase Hord and Whitney Frashure and eighth-grader Peyton Dabney.
Hord recently made school history by becoming the first CMS student to be elected to a state office at the Kentucky Junior Beta convention.
He was elected to serve as secretary at next year’s convention, and will move on to compete for the national secretary title this summer.
Eighth-grader Peyton Dabney won third place in social studies and seventh-grader Whitney Frashure won third place in language arts. They also advance to nationals.
As a whole, at the Kentucky Junior Beta convention, the CMS Junior Beta Club was awarded a National 10% Growth Award and named a National School of Merit.
The National Junior Beta Convention will be in Savannah, Ga., on June 13-16.
CMS academic team members and seventh-graders Haylee Allen and MaCayla Falls recently competed at region Governor’s Cup, and, as a result of their scores, advance to state competition.
Allen placed fourth in math and Falls was fourth in science.
State competition will be on March 17-19 at the Galt House in Louisville.
Lewis said he is very proud of all the students.
“We’ve got some kids who are really representing Campbellsville Independent Schools in a great way,” he said.
