William Lenoir Middle School Named National Beta School of Merit
Lenoir, NC, April 2021 – Caldwell County Schools is proud to announce that William Lenoir Middle School is a 2020-2021 National Beta School of Merit. The school earned this recognition by offering National Beta to all eligible grades on their campus.
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 29% of Beta Clubs across the country received this award.
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!”
During the North Carolina State Convention this spring, two William Lenior Middle School seventh graders qualified to complete in the National Beta Convention this summer. We are so very proud of them!
