    Junior Beta Recaps a Year of Service Projects

    posted May 15, 2014, 1:06 PM by Beth McCullough   [ updated May 19, 2014, 12:08 PM by Darlene Lemons ]

    As the school year draws to an end, the Chatham Charter Junior Beta Club has recapped its year of service projects.  

    The club is responsible for organizing service projects that help the community and nation.  Not only has the Chatham Charter chapter helped raise funding for the school, members have also collected winter clothing for those in need and canned drink tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. 

    This spring the club bought and put together hope boxes that a group of Chatham Central High School students took to middle school students in Kentucky who were not able to afford basic items like socks and toothbrushes.

    Service projects include areas that help Chatham Charter students and keep the campus clean and safe.  In October, the chapter helped raise anti-drug awareness on campus during the national Red Ribbon Week.  During the December production of The Nutcracker by third grade classes, chapter members served as backstage technicians during performances.  Members cleaned parts of the gym after home basketball games and helped with landscaping before the annual Spring Carnival.


    “As a service organization we are here to improve the lives of those around us and to set a good example for our future members,” said eighth grader Alec Brewer, chapter service project chairman.


    Beta Club is an organization built on strong academic achievement, character and service.

    Chatham Charter Student Wins Photography Awards

    posted Apr 29, 2014, 12:26 PM by Beth McCullough   [ updated May 19, 2014, 12:00 PM by Darlene Lemons ]

    During an awards ceremony on Monday, April 21, Morgan Southern, a sophomore at Chatham Charter School, was announced as one of the winners at the state level in photography competitions sponsored through the Dolly Madison Woman’s Club and General Federation of Women’s Clubs.

    Earlier in the winter, Southern had initial success at the district level General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC-NC) District 4 Arts Festival in which she won six first place awards, one second place award, and a third place award in various areas spanning from still life photographs to color shots of “the world in pictures” as a category.  The district competition spanned ten area counties including Alamance, Forsyth, and Guilford.

    She then advanced to the state competition, the GFWC-NC State Arts Festival, held on the campus of Campbell University in March.  There seven of her nine photography submissions earned top three recognitions.  Four of Southern’s photographs placed second and three placed third.

    Among the subjects Southern chose for her submissions were a street market scene in Antigua; a man fishing on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala; a close-up of bicycle wheel with a trolley passing by in the background entitled Reflections at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco; and a self portrait in three silhouettes in a 19th century Eden house window.  The photographs are currently on display in the high school building of Chatham Charter School.  A digital slideshow is also posted on the school website (

    I picked up photography about two years ago and have been able to build on my skills through reading, websites, and advice.  I love photography because I can capture moments in life that are candid and not ever able to be replayed.  The joy I get from seeing a frame perfectly composed through my viewfinder cannot be replaced by anything. Imogen Cunningham once said "Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow." For me this amplifies how I feel about photography. I long to capture people's emotions and their environments for years to come so that I can share these moments with everyone around the world. I want to be able to spark an emotion and passion within people for many tomorrows far into the future,” explained Southern who hopes to pursue photography as a career.

    Southern is the daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Donald Southern.
