SALUTING THE NATIONAL BETA CLUB, WHICH WAS FOUNDED IN LANDRUM IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY, ON ITS SIXTIETH ANNIVERSARY AND WISHING THE CLUB MANY MORE YEARS OF SUCCESS.
Whereas, the National Beta Club was formed in Landrum in Spartanburg County on January 8, 1934, and is celebrating its sixtieth anniversary this year; and
Whereas, Landrum High School's Beta Club is the "mother chapter" of the national organization, and the Landrum High club is featured in the January, 1994 issue of the National Beta Club Journal, a distinctive honor indeed; and
Whereas, the national organization was established by the late Dr. John West Harris, a Spartanburg County native and later a professor at Wofford College; and
Whereas, Dr. Harris installed the first chapter of the national club at Landrum High, where Miss Helen Prince was the first Beta sponsor in the nation; and
Whereas, before the year 1934 was over, nine chapters of the Beta Club were functioning; and
Whereas, in 1994, the Landrum High chapter continues striving to promote leadership and good citizenship and to recognize and encourage academic success among high school students; and
Whereas, the Landrum club's sponsor is Martha Walker, who has led the group at her school for the past fourteen years; and
Whereas, the National Beta Club with its very high standards and worthy goals, and acting through its outstanding local chapters across the country, has had a truly positive impact on the success and accomplishments of our great nation for the past six decades thanks in large measure to the wisdom and the vision of Dr. John West Harris; and
Whereas, the National Beta Club's celebration of its sixtieth birthday is an occasion highly deserving of recognition. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, salutes the National Beta Club, which was founded in Landrum in Spartanburg County, on its sixtieth anniversary and wishes the club many more years of success.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the National Beta Club, in care of Mr. George W. Lockamy, Executive Director, and to the Landrum High School Beta Club, in care of Mrs. Martha Walker, club sponsor.
