Sixteen Holy Family students from sixth and seventh grade were inducted into the National Junior Beta Club on Monday, Jan. 27 at Holy Family School. These 16 students join the 38 current seventh and eighth grade student Beta Club Members. The Club is a scholastic, service and leadership organization. Members aim to be of service to their school, community, state and nation. Five candles are lit during the ceremony, serving as reminders to their pledge to uphold the ideals of our nation. The white candle denotes light, purity, and faith. The red candle demotes love, wisdom and bravery. The blue candle is indicative of truth, constancy and fidelity. The black candle symbolizes the dignity, restraint and seriousness which members search for knowledge and truth. Finally, the gold candle designates warmth, friendliness and faithfulness.

The new members are pinned with the National Junior Beta Club pin by members of their family. Students are pinned by parents, grandparents, or older siblings. The students publicly pledge their commitment to this club and receive a certificate and pin acknowledging their membership.

Logan Tsarnas, a seventh grade student, was newly initiated this year. He was excited to join Beta Club and asked his grandmother, Lisa Timms, to pin him.

"I felt it was an honor for Logan to pick me," she said. "He has fought my battle with me and continues to help me get through this fight. He shows me everyday how compassionate he is and how much he cares for others"
