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.”
