Students at Cole R-1 Schools have enjoyed learning to "lead by serving others" through Beta Club.
They helped organize a 5K-run fundraiser and a father-child summer golf tournament. They helped collect for the local food bank and volunteered at a Special Olympics event.
Although similar to National Honor Society, Beta Club has a 3.0 grade point average standard, a strong community service component, begins in junior high, and holds annual competitions at the state and national levels.
The annual state convention in Branson is where some of the best Beta Club memories have been made for many Russellville High School students.
