Young Places Third in National Jr Beta Performance

Local DMS student, Lillie Grace Young, placed third in the National Jr. Beta Performance Arts Dance category recently held in Louisville KY.  Lillie made her way to Nationals back in November of 2022 when she placed 2nd at the state level, which allowed her to move on to Nationals this summer. 

Lille performed early Saturday morning in preliminaries, competing against 33 other dancers from all different states.  The top three dancers from preliminaries then moved on to finals, and danced one more time Saturday night.  Lillie clogged to a mixed version of “Rocky Top,” and “Party in the USA.”  She was awarded third place Sunday morning. 

Beta is a club that promotes academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.  Mrs. Teresa Jones, the DMS Beta sponsor accompanied Lillie in her weekend festivities. 

Lillie would like to thank Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Mary Ann Puckett for all their help in her preparations for the conference.
