In early June 2020, National Beta announced that LSMSA is a 2019-2020 National School of Distinction. This award honors the school’s Beta Club who strives toward academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others.
“I’m very proud of the students and their success as a club,” said Beta Club Sponsor Bonnie Rutledge. “From national competitions and state conventions to local community projects, LSMSA students have represented the school well in leadership and service.”
The National Beta School of Distinction designation rewards LSMSA students for demonstrating these characteristic and applauds the school for an increase in membership for the academic year.
“This prestigious honor is a true indication of LSMSA’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their students’ achievements,” said National Beta Chief Executive Officer Bobby Hart.
National Beta is the largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization in America. Since its beginnings in 1934, National Beta has been committed to providing students with a positive experience in a supportive manner in grades 4-12. The organization recognizes outstanding achievement, promotes character and social responsibility, encourages service involvement to school and community, and fosters leadership skills.
