Chi Beta Chi Wins FHU's Makin' Music
Freed-Hardeman University’s Chi Beta Chi took the Makin’ Music sweepstakes last weekend with their entry “Get Hooked.” The group placed first in all but one category. All six clubs competed in the 35th annual production entitled “Tonight, Tonight.”
This win was Chi Beta Chi’s seventh in their twenty years of participation, the second most for any of the clubs.
