beta does well at nationals


Several Hardin County Schools students brought home awards this summer from the Beta National Junior and Beta National Senior Conventions in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

“We are excited to have so many students attend these conventions,” HCS Superintendent Teresa Morgan said.  “We are also thankful to their parents for funding, providing transportation and plenty of love and support that afforded these students with an opportunity they will never forget.  These opportunities also would not be possible if it weren’t for the dedicated Beta sponsors at our schools.  The HCS family is strong because of the commitment and hard work by our students, their parents, our staff and our community.”

According to betaclub.org, “there are now more than 500,000 active members and more than 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally. It has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization.”  In the mission statement listed on the same website, Beta clubs “promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.”
