BETA Club Induction


Cameron Sudweeks

Mrs. Michelle Solomon, BETA Club sponsor, inducted 8 new members in a ceremony held in the cafetorium at the beginning of the year. The BETA Club is an honor society that was established in 1988 with the motto “Let us lead by serving others.”

The High School BETA Club has been led by Mrs. Solomon for several years. “When Mrs. Beekman asked me if I could take over BETA when she retired, I accepted her offer.”  she says. When asked about what she enjoyed the most about the BETA Club sponsor she replied, “Giving the BETA Club members encouragement to serve in and for the community.”  

In the past, BETA Club membership was only offered to juniors and seniors whose overall GPA was a 90 or higher. Recently, all high students who have a GPA of 90 or above, are invited to join the BETA Club. To do this, each potential inductee had to fill out an application, write a short essay, and get three different teacher recommendations.  

The first BETA Club meeting of the 2017-2018 year, the BETA Club members elected officers. The BETA members voted Hannah Williams as President, Kenneth Andrews as Vice-President, Lexi Kingston as the Secretary/Historian, and Landon Odom as the BETA Club Chaplin.

The newly inducted BETA Club members were Seniors, Makenzie Hauser and Leann Youngblood; Junior, Zane Locke; and Sophomores Sarolyn Musick, Zach Spradley, Kelon Berry, and Kelly Pape. This year the BETA Club has the goals of getting at least 25 people to donate blood per each Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center blood drive and to have a successful fundraiser for St. Jude’s Hospital.
