National Junior Beta Club faculty sponsor, Scott Sandoval, opened the October 15th Installation and Induction Ceremony with an explanation of the mission of the National Beta Club. First to promote the ideals of academic performance by recognizing and honoring high academic achievement; second to encourage outstanding character by preparing young people for life and empowering them to be successful, and third to promote service and leadership among students by following the Beta motto: Let us lead by serving others.
He recognized the group of five new officers and 29 new members as remarkable young people, with stellar academic records and for being balanced students with an incredibly diverse range of interests and accomplishments. They are committed to improving their school, community, and their world. He is excited to be working with this cohort - the largest ever - to see what they will achieve this year.
