18 local schools earn National Beta School of Merit status

If you notice window decals around Gwinnett schools this fall, it’s because 18 schools across the county received the symbol to mark their achievement of 2017 National Beta School of Merit status.

The schools earned the award by offering National Beta to all eligible grades on their campus.

They were honored at the 2017 National Beta Club Convention this summer in Orlando, Fla. The National Beta Club is the nation’s largest independent, nonprofit, educational youth organization. Its mission is to promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.
