Eastside High School has been named a 2017-2018 National Beta 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.

“I am extremely proud of our BETA Club students and our sponsors Mr. Mark Rachels and Ms. Angela Lewis,” said Jeff Cher, principal of Eastside High School. “We celebrate the recognition as we continue to foster an environment of excellence for all students.”

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 2018 National Beta Convention in Savannah, GA this June.

“This prestigious honor is a true indication of Eastside High School’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements.” said National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer, Bob Bright.
