ACHIEVEMENT

 The first pillar of Beta is Achievement. Achievement, clearly defined, is a result gained by effort. By being invited to become a Beta member, we’ve already made a great achievement, but it shouldn’t stop now. Maintaining one’s membership requires dedication and a focus on daily accomplishments. Betas are encouraged to stay motivated, be willing to contribute and follow through to maintain success within this pillar. Challenge yourself, Betas: set goals, overcome obstacles, continually improve, and do your best both academically and beyond.


CHARACTER

 The second pillar of Beta is Character. When Beta’s founder, Dr. John W. Harris founded National Beta in 1934, he set out to create an organization that helped students learn to make a life for themselves. He knew that an individual of worthy and moral character, who understood charity, cooperation, honesty, responsibility and humility would be able to move forward in life with the skills needed to work with others and give back to their community. By emphasizing character as one of the four pillars we are being prepared for life and empowered to be successful.

 LEADERSHIP

 The third pillar of Beta is Leadership. Our generation will one day become the leaders of tomorrow. We’ll need to learn how to properly translate vision into reality, to guide our fellow peers in the right direction through effective planning, decision making, communication and teamwork. But above all, we’ll need patience and a willingness to lead by example. By becoming a Beta, we’re already embarking on a path to learn these skills. Once gained, we’ll be in a unique position to make a difference in our school, community, state and beyond.


 SERVICE

 The fourth and final pillar of Beta is Service. Service and leadership are closely tied for Beta members through the demonstration of our motto “Let Us Lead By Serving Others”. John W. Harris believed that it was not only our duty but a privilege to serve our community. Through service you’ll begin to think of others before yourself. Betas, I encourage you to make a habit of recognizing a need, big or small, in our school and community then share it with your fellow members. Together, we’ll work to address the issue and make an impact.
