The National Beta Club was founded in 1934. Its mission is to promote academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.
The talent and efforts exhibited by these students are worthy of recognition. If you know a student who is a Beta member, be sure to thank them for representing our community well.
