Alcorn Central High School is proud to announce that we are a 2022-2023 National Beta School of Merit. The school earned this recognition by offering National Beta to all eligible grades on their campus in grades 9-12 while participating in community and school sponsor service events and leadership activities.

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 3,583 Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

With more than 500,000 active members and 9,000 chapters nationally and internationally, National Beta has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. National Beta recognizes outstanding achievement, promotes character and social responsibility, encourages service involvement to school and community, and fosters leadership skills. The National Beta program offers over $300,000 annually to its Senior Beta Members. Visit betaclub.org for more information. 

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!”

ACHS Beta Club is sponsored by veteran sponsor Mrs. Susan Holt and new sponsor Coach John Mask. Mrs. Holt has been heading up the Beta Club for the past five years. She is always proud of the work that our students can do in our school and community. She stated, “ACHS Beta has had a long legacy of service to our community and of building skills for our future leaders.   I am very proud to be a sponsor of our club.” We encourage students to continue their academic and personal success. This year, Alcorn Central High School will be able to induct many more new members to its ranks that are over 120 students strong.
