Saint Mary's School celebrates 27 BETA inductions

Media release: Twenty-five fifth grade students and two sixth grade students (pictured) were inducted into the Saint Mary's School Junior Beta Club this week.

The National Beta Club is an organization for 5th through 12th grade students, founded in 1934. Its purpose is "to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, leadership and service among elementary and secondary school students."  The junior division is for students in 5th through 9th grade.  The Nation Beta Club motto is "Let Us Lead by Serving Others."

Kelly Armstrong, moderator of the Saint Mary's Beta Club, said "We are thrilled to welcome such a large group of inductees to the Beta Club.  At Saint Mary's, service is an important part of every student's curriculum, so the Beta Club serves as a great way to expand our older students' commitment to service.  Our current middle school members have already done an exceptional job this year with many projects, so I'm excited to see what we can continue to do with such a large incoming group."

Induction into the Saint Mary's Beta Club is based on excellence in academic performance and conduct.
