Southern Wake Academy Named National Beta School of Distinction

Holly Springs, North Carolina – National Beta is proud to announce Southern Wake Academy as a 2017-2018 National 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 so proud of the hard work and dedication these students have for their school and their community.” Mrs. Whitney

“Beta helped turn me into the person I am today. It taught me leadership and responsibility and allowed me to view the world in a different way.” June Burchette – Beta President

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 Southern Wake Academy’s dedication to academic excellence, leadership development and commitment to celebrating their student’s achievements.” said National Beta’s Chief Executive Officer, Bob Bright.

Southern Wake Academy is closed November 22-November 24. 

We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Need something to browse while you digest turkey and mashed potatoes? Check out the OCS Christmas Ornament Fundraiser and mark your calendars for the SWA Art Festival on December 2nd with Spirit Nights in Holly Springs that same evening.

If you find the energy to start decorating this week after all that cooking and eating, then we would love any old (still working) twinkle lights you might find for our upcoming Fashion Show.

Enjoy this holiday break and we’ll see you back on Monday!
