Hartsville Middle School named National Beta Club School of Distinction
National Beta announced recently that Hartsville Middle School is a 2017-2018 National School of Distinction. This award is an honor for Beta chapters striving toward academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others.
With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership for the current school year.
Brian Hickman, principal of Hartsville Middle School, praised all who worked so hard throughout the year.
“We are honored to be named a National Beta School of Distinction,” Hickman said. “Our teacher sponsors have worked diligently to grow the program, and our students put forth a great effort in their quest for academic achievement and serving others.”
Hartsville Middle School will receive a National Beta School of Distinction banner to display as a symbol of their accomplishment. In addition, National Beta School of Distinction recipients will be recognized at the 2018 National Beta Convention in Savannah, Georgia, in June.
“This prestigious honor is a true indication of Hartsville Middle School’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements.” said National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer, Bob Bright.
