Highland High School Named National Beta School of Distinction
National Beta is proud to announce Highland High School as a 2018-2019 National School of Distinction. This award is an honor for Beta Chapters striving towards academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others. With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership for the current school year.
“We are very excited to receive this distinction,” said Matt Dombkowski, the club’s sponsor. “Our Beta Club's membership has been steadily increasing over the past few years, and I am proud that more and more students are striving toward excellence and choosing to be leaders that serve our school and community,” he added.
Award recipients received a National Beta School of Distinction banner to proudly display as a symbol of their accomplishment. In addition, National Beta School of Distinction recipients will be publicized at the 2019 National Beta Convention in Oklahoma City, OK this June.
“This prestigious honor is a true indication of Highland’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements,” said National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer, Bobby Hart.
