The Hardin Reynolds Memorial School Junior Beta Club held its Junior Beta Induction Ceremony on Monday, January 30. Thirty-five members were inducted into the organization. In order to be eligible for Junior Beta, students must have had a 3.75 GPA for the previous year.
Our Beta sponsor, Mrs. Stephanie Campbell welcomed everyone to the program. Alice Terry, our club Chaplain, led everyone in an opening prayer. Jordan Draper, club President, introduced the program. She, along with Morgan Handy, Julianna Turner, Ava Rigney, Levi Hankins, Carson Farrar, Halo Martin, and Gabrielle Reynolds used a wheel to symbolize the four pillars of Beta: Achievement, Character, Leadership and Service. Each characteristic is explained in terms of the connection the individual parts of the wheel play in the development of the wheel; much like the development aspects of being a Beta.
The inductees were:
4th graders: Taelyn Blankenship, Colston Collins, Simon Frazier, Aiden Hagwood, Avalynn Huffman, Miles Lange, Amilya Lawson, James Pombo, Jada Stump, Linnea Tankersley, Alice Terry, Elena Turner, and Mason Whitlow
6th graders: Cali Biggs, Kylee Childress*, Bentlee Davis*, Conor Dollarhite*, Sky Evans, Grahm Foley, Sarah Hagwood*, Levi Hankins, Madison Purdy, Gabrielle Reynolds*, Ava Rigney*, Shianne Townsend, Jayson Turney*, and Reagan Underwood* (* Denotes those who were members in Division I last year).
7th graders: Daniel Conner, Peyton Kelley, Savannah Lawrence, Sheyan Lester, McKenzie Mitchell, Bentley Rowe, Aaliyah Spencer, and Will Vipperman.
Club President, Jordan Draper, led the members in the Jr. Beta Pledge and welcomed our new members. Certificates were presented by Principal, Adam Carter, and sponsors Mrs. Campbell and Ms. LaPrade. The inductees were then pinned by the current membership.
Mrs. Campbell closed our program and invited all in attendance to join us for a reception. The faculty and staff offer congratulations to this group of students.
