Cairo Junior/Senior High School Named National Beta School of Merit


The National Beta School of Merit award is given to honor a club’s dedication and commitment to academic excellence. To achieve this prestigious honor, a school must include members from all eligible grade levels in their Beta club. This year, only 29% of Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

In a congratulatory letter to the school, Bobby Hart, CEO said “This prestigious honor is a true indication of your dedication to academic excellence and commitment to celebrating your students' achievements.  Offering National Beta to all eligible grades provides your school experiences in leadership development and service involvement which strengthen and build your students.  Thank you for your continued support of National Beta and commitment to developing future leaders!”
