    Once my child has applied, and perhaps been accepted into the Senior Beta Club: what activities, meetings, social events, etc. will she be expected to participate during the year?

      Students inducted into the Beta Club honor society would be expected to participate in at least 15 hours of community service throughout the school year, and have the hours certified by us. There will also be an induction ceremony in January. Other events will be optional.
