The CDS Beta Club chapter has gained recognition locally, statewide, and nationally. In 2019 Beta Club was named a 2019 National Beta School of Merit. This prestigious honor is in recognition of the school’s dedication to academic excellence and commitment to celebrating students’ achievements.

Locally, the CDS Beta Club chapter is always a beacon of inspiration at the annual community Relay for Life events to benefit the American Cancer Society. They are regularly among the top school money raisers and have been recognized for both their fundraising and spirit!

At the state convention in January 2020, CDS Beta Club took three first place and two third place honors, with seven members qualifying to compete at the National Convention in Ft. Worth, TX.

Although the National Beta Club Convention had to be virtual this year, CDS achieved much success. Congratulations to these National Placement Winners:

  • Ellen J. (’21) - 11th grade Language Arts, 8th Place
  • Chloe W. (’21) - Technology, 5th Place
  • Katie M. (’21), Meredith S. (’21), Sydney D. (’21), & Reece K. (’20) - Quiz Bowl, 9th Place
  • Katie M.(’21) & Meredith S. (’21) - Service Learning, 6th Place

We are confident that the 2020-2021 officers and new members will uphold the chapter’s legacy for service and enthusiasm!

Thank you to Mrs. Shelly Hollingsworth for being the sponsor of the upper school Beta Club chapter. CDS is proud to also have a Jr. Beta Club chapter for middle school students.

Since the first Beta Club was formed in 1934, The National Beta Club has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. The National Beta Club is committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills, and encouraging service to others.
