BETA Club is an academic honors organization focused on community service. The Beta Club’s mission is to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students. On Wednesday Sept. 21 students were invited to the club which included sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and inductions are scheduled for Wednesday Nov. 16 during Connect.

“I felt happy when I received my invitation, since it will help my college application and allow me to spend time at events with my friends,” sophomore Samuel Newborn said. “ I plan on joining Beta Club to help the community through service, and for the accolades I receive from the club.”

BETA Club benefits students by teaching them the importance and value of community service while also striving to maintain high academic achievement. The club is invitation-only. Students are eligible for invitation beginning their tenth grade year based on their academic record for the previous school year. The requirement for invitation is at least a 3.6 GPA, which is the equivalent of last year’s 90.0 

“When I received my invitation letter I was excited. I felt like I deserved it because of my hard work and achievements,” sophomore Dani Kimbrough said. “ I feel that I meet all the requirements so I plan on joining Beta Club, and also I will be a positive influence and addition to the club.”

Students are responsible for at least 13 hours of service; 10 hours must be Beta sponsored events and 3 hours can be outside volunteer hours. The activities students complete should provide service to the community and promote leadership and character among students.

“Beta Club has a stole that all seniors in good standing with the club can purchase before graduation. To be considered an active member, you must have a GPA of 3.6 or higher and get 13 hours of service by the end of the year,” Beta Club president and senior Jillian Manville said.
