NEWBERRY — Newberry Academy has been named a 2017 National Beta School of Merit.
Newberry Academy’s Beta Club, which is open to all eligible grade levels, provide students with experiences in leadership development and service involvement which strengthen and build their futures.
“This is the second year Newberry Academy has been awarded this honor, and we are very proud of the hard work and dedication of our student members,” said Laurie Suber, Beta Club faculty advisor.
In addition to maintaining rigorous academics, Beta Club participated in numerous outreach projects both on and off campus during the 2016-17 school year, some of which included Relay for Life, March of Dimes and campus beautification activities.
Newberry Academy received a congratulatory letter and a National Beta School of Merit window decal to display as a symbol of the school’s accomplishment.
