What is Beta Club?

The Beta Club motto is Let us Lead by Serving Others! The Purpose of the Coffee County Central High School chapter of the National Beta Club is to promote leadership, character, academic achievement and service. This club will also provide opportunities for students to share their talents in math, science, history, creative writing, art, music, dance, drama and speech at the state and national level through participation at Beta Conventions

When and where are the Beta Club Meetings?

The CHS Beta club meets once a month on the last Wednesday of each month from 3-4pm in Mrs. Acklen's room, room 70.  Officers and other committees or groups may be asked to meet more often.
