On Thursday afternoon the first Installation was held by the Junior Beta Club at Red River Elementary School. Officers were introduced and all members were inducted.
The Beta Club is sponsored by Kenotta Williams, Crystal Williams and Tiffany Williams of the elementary school staff. Tiffany Williams served as Master of Ceremonies at the induction ceremony.
Each club officer lit a colored candle signifying one of the qualities Beta Club strives for. And each officer gave brief remarks describing the particular attribute their candle represented.
The National Beta Club (often called “Beta Club” or simply “Beta”) is an organization for 4th through 12th grade students in the United States. Its purpose is “to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, leadership and service among elementary and secondary school students.”
After the ceremony, and before they had refreshments, the new Junior Beta Club members posed for pictures. Proud parents were everywhere, and they have a lot to be proud of.
