Vina inducts Beta students

May 9, Vina High School inducted 35 students into the school’s new chapter of the National Senior Beta Club.

Students were chosen in April based on a few criteria specifically focused on the four pillars of the National Beta Club: achievement, character, leadership and service. Each student had to have at least an 80 average and receive two recommendations from teachers.

Any students who were in in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension this school year were disqualified.

Sarah Jane Hattaway, club sponsor, said she hopes having this honor society will encourage other students to raise the bar with their academics and behavior.

Members, by grade level, are:

  • Ninth grade: Cassidy Cameron, Amy Colvin, Austin Davis, Aaron Gann, Peyton Hughes, Avery McNeill, Braden Pardue and Kayleigh Scott.
  • 10th grade: Nash Humphres, Baylee Hutcheson, Kade James, Hannah Johnson, Sarah Johnson, Kaitlyn King, Tristan Moomaw, Jayla Puckett and Greta Raper.
  • 11th grade: Sierra Ayers, Alea Baker, Issac Harper, Summer Hickman, Sarah Hughes, Anna Belle Humphres, Emma Humphres, Makenzie Humphres, Timothy Newell, Katherine Singleton and Dalton Williams.
  • 12th grade: Elizabeth Baty, Brooke Brown, Trae Dill, Blake Hardin, Carlan McNeill, Tasha Singleton and Trinity Valentine.

The Vina chapter also installed the new officers for the 2018-219 school year: Emma Humphres as president, Makenzie Lawler as vice president, Anna Belle Humphres as secretary, Sierra Ayers as treasurer and Issac Harper as committee counsel.

These officers were nominated and voted on by their fellow Beta members, Hattaway said.

The Vina chapter completed its first fundraiser for the scholarship fund for senior members.

Students were able to raise enough money for four out of the seven senior members to receive scholarships. Hattaway said the recipients of the scholarships are chosen by all high school teachers and will be acknowledged at graduation.
