Beta Club

The National Beta Club was founded in South Carolina in 1934. Founders of the club wanted to recognize students who exemplified the ideals of character, leadership, and achievement.
Today, there are more than 417,000 members of the Beta Club world-wide. On April 7, 1937, the Central High chapter of the National Beta Club was founded.
