 What is Jr. Beta Club?


The National Beta Club  began as the dream of our founder, Dr. John W. Harris, a professor at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC. Since the first Beta Club was formed in Landrum, SC in 1934, The National Beta Clubhas become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. We are committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others.  


The purpose of the M.D. Roberts School of the Arts Junior Beta Club is to promote the ideals of   academic achievement, character, service and leadership among secondary school students.



The motto of The National Beta Club  is "Let Us Lead By Serving Others." This motto, more than simply a catchy phrase, states the philosophy upon which The National Beta Club is based. Service to others is indeed one of the most important characteristics of Beta Club membership. Service projects will address needs in our school and community by Beta members throughout the school year.


Meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday  of each month at 4:15 pm
