Beta Club continues to serve school, community

Emily Merz, Staff Writer

Beta Club is an opportunity for Center Hill High School students who want to make a difference in the school and community.

“Beta Club is a great way to serve the community and also get out of your comfort zone,” said Abigail Penfield, a CHHS junior who served as Beta Club president last year.

Beta Club is a student-run club, so all of the service projects are chosen by the members. One of their projects is providing childcare services for teachers on the days that they have faculty meetings. In the past, they have made Christmas and Valentine’s Day cards for teachers, picked up trash around the school, and volunteered at Field of Dreams.

English teacher Cynthia Stanley is the Beta Club sponsor.

“We’re a small club, so you really get to know the members,” Stanley said.

Stanley said to join Beta, students must have a 93 average or above in each core class and demonstrate leadership qualities in and out of the classroom.

“More people should apply for Beta if they meet the requirements,” Stanley said. “Our goal is to expand membership.”

Stanley said invitations will be sent to eligible ninth- and 10th-graders soon.
