My Students

"Let us LEAD by SERVING others."

Students in our school system's Beta Clubs love learning in all of their STEAM classes, and work hard to become better leaders and to serve others.

Our students maintain a 3.0 or higher GPA and participate in all sorts of extra-curricular activities.

Our schools are Title I schools in a small southern town near a military base. Our town was rated the fifth most patriotic town in the United States! Our students are a very diverse group who love the club. They meet several times a month to discuss what it means to be a Beta: academic achievement, character, leadership, and service. We are fortunate to teach in a wonderful school system where teachers are supported and student learning is a priority.

My Project

The Beta Clubs in our district recently competed at the state convention in Alabama. We qualified for Nationals in 28 different competitions. These 100 students have worked hard to place in the top 5 in the state in all academic subjects, performing arts, visual arts, speech, engineering, technology, quiz bowl, marketing & communications, and National office.

The future of our country is the youth of today!

We are teaching these children how to be leaders, with great character, and the willingness to serve the community. Our students will get to compete with the best of the other states. To compete is to learn about yourself and others. These students will be the leaders of tomorrow.

If funded, these children will be able to travel to Oklahoma City to attend the National Beta Club Convention where they can showcase their talents in all subject areas. They are also able to attend leadership workshops. Please help us nurture the leaders of tomorrow.
