Students inducted into the National Junior Beta Club
Holy Family students from grades six, seven and eight were recently inducted into the National Junior Beta Club at Holy Family School in Poland.
The club is a scholastic, service and leadership organization in which members strive to be of service to their school, community, state and nation.
The five candles used during the ceremony, were white for light, purity and faith; red for love, wisdom and bravery; blue for truth, constancy and fidelity; black for dignity, restraint and seriousness; and gold for warmth, friendliness and faithfulness.
Members are pinned by parents, grandparents or older siblings.
