CMS students inducted into National Junior Beta Club

Twenty-two new members were inducted into Campbellsville Middle School’s National Junior Beta Club on Sunday, Nov. 19.

 

To be eligible to become a member, CMS students must be a leader in their school, maintain a 3.5 GPA and commit to completing community service hours. Teachers can also nominate students to become members.

 

At the ceremony, CMS Principal Zach Lewis thanked the parents of the students being honored.

 

“So, thank you, parents, for pushing your child to be above and beyond, not only in the classroom, but out of the classroom as well,” he said.

 

CMS eighth-grader and Beta member Rylee Petett prayed for a successful school year and gave thanks for the new Beta members.

 

CMS eighth-grader Sarah Adkins, who is vice president of the CMS Beta Club, said there are four ideals Beta members must have, including achievement, character, leadership and service.

 

Each is represented with a key that will unlock Beta members’ futures, secretary Lainey Watson said, but they don’t belong to Beta members exclusively.

 

“Any of you may possess them,” she said.

 

Watson discussed the leadership key.

 

“It holds great influence and unlocks doors that lead all of us, to some degree, to influence our neighbors.”

 

Tayler Thompson, Beta treasurer, spoke about the character key.

 

“It is a very strong key, and will unlock the most difficult locks,” she said.

 

Bri Gowdy, who is the Beta reporter, spoke about the key of achievement.

 

And Petett spoke about the key of service.

 

“It is a master key. It will unlock the doors that open the hearts of all mankind,” she said.

 

New members were asked to recite the Beta pledge, which states they will be honest and truthful at all times, maintain a creditable scholastic record, be of service to others and behave in a manner that reflects credit upon the community and CMS.

 

New members received a certificate of induction and a pin and were treated to refreshments after the ceremony.

 

New Beta members are sixth-graders Zachary Akin, Mollie Bailey, Jovi Bowen, Aryanna Britton, Daniel Caton, Karlie Cox, Brianna Dobson, Lexi Garvin, Ellington Gowin, Kiara Graves, Nathan McFarland, Katlin Rainwater, Alexis Sharp, Layla Steen and Chloe Thompson; seventh-graders Haylee Allen, Alexis Byers, Mikaela Scharbrough and Ronin Smith; and eighth-graders Abby Brisko, Myricle Gholston and Alexis Thomas.

 

CMS eighth-grader Kaylyn Smith is Beta president.
