National Jr Beta Club
Beta’s mission originated with Dr. John W. Harris, a professor at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, who founded the organization in 1934. Over 80 years have passed, but his vision and Beta’s mission has remained the same. And most everyone who has been fortunate enough to be called a member has embraced those ideals and applied them to their own lives. From U.S. President Bill Clinton to current professional basketball player Kevin Durant, Beta members continue to lead long after their high school days are behind them.
Junior Beta is divided into two divisions: Division I includes grades 4-5 and Division II includes grades 6-8.
Harrells Christian Academy's Junior Beta Club has been one of the most decorated chapters in the state of North Carolina, winning more team and individual awards in the past several years than any other school!
