Kemper County High School Beta Club receives Honors


Kemper County School District is proud to an­nounce that Kemper County High School is a 2021-2022 National Beta School of Merit and District of Distinction. The high school earned this recogni­tion by offering National Beta to all eligible grades on their campus. National Junior Beta includes grades 4-8 and National Senior Beta includes grades 9-12.

The National Beta School of Merit award is given to honor a club’s dedication and commitment to aca­demic excellence. To achieve this prestigious honor, a school must in­clude members from all eli­gible grade levels in their Beta club. This year, only 3,380 Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

“This is the second year in a row for us receiving both honors,” said Sylvia Hop­kins, Kemper County High School Beta Club Sponsor. “It is great to see that our club currently has 40 stu­dents with 3.0 grade point average or above and pos­sess exemplary character.“

The beta club continues to have students who are interested in joining and participating in the club’s activities. “Our goal for the upcoming school year is to have 100 beta club mem­bers from the high school,” said Hopkins.

“Our parents play a huge part in the success of our program,” said Hilute Hud­son, Superintendent of Kemper County School Dis­trict. “Committing to aca­demic excellence, service, and leadership starts at home. Our parents are the catalysts that drive our stu­dents to give their best and these honors represent those efforts. We want to see more students and families take part in our noteworthy organization.”
