Tar Heel, NC April 29,2021 – Bladen County Schools is proud to announce that Tar Heel Middle School is a 2020-2021 National Beta School of Merit. The school earned this recognition by offering National Beta to all eligible grades on their campus.
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 “Thank you for your continued support of National Beta and commitment to developing future leaders!”
“I am super excited with our students’ success, especially in such a difficult year!” commented Noel Dennis, Beta Sponsor. “I, along with the other sponsors, Kim Smith, Michelle Bordeaux, and Priscilla Council, are so very proud of all of the students. It says a lot about the students at Tar Heel that they would want to go above and beyond regular school assignments to complete at the State Convention. We had several winners that will move on to the National Beta Club competition!”
