The National Beta Club recognizes high academic achievement, promotes character and social responsibility, encourages service involvement to school and community, fosters leadership skills, and provides settings to develop interpersonal relationship skills.
Inductions are held in the spring of each year. A student may be inducted into the Chatham Charter Jr. Beta Club if he/she has a cumulative average of at least 93 with no grade below 85 on the first semester grades and above average conduct. To remain in the club, a member must maintain a cumulative average of 90 with no grade below 85 and continue with good conduct.The CCS Jr. Beta Club attends the N.C. Jr. Beta Convention and participates in academic and talent competitions. The club recently sponsored Red Ribbon Week to remind students to “say no to drugs.” Other projects include collecting aluminum pull tabs for Ronald McDonald House, campus cleanups, and assisting with the third grade production of The Nutcracker.
Chatham Charter Jr. Beta Club recently participated in a service project, HOPE Boxes for students in southeastern Kentucky. Beta members provided 27 shoe boxes filled with items for eighth grade students in Harlan and Perry Counties where about 30% of the population live below poverty level. The boxes, filled with items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, candy, school supplies, toys, etc, will be delivered at Easter. If you are interested in providing a HOPE box, contact Jr. Beta Sponsor, Kay Lopossay.
