SPRINGVILLE – The National Beta Club announced Wednesday, Nov. 28, that Springville High School has been awarded the 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 believe this a direct result of our faculty’s and student’s hard work and diligent service to our community,” Springville High School Vice-Principal Jeff Smith said.
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, Oklahoma, this June.
“This prestigious honor is a true indication of Springville’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements,” National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer Bobby Hart said.
