LCHS Beta Club works to help
The Lincoln County High School Beta Club once again has chosen to sponsor the Fayetteville-Lincoln County Animal Shelter as the club’s fall project.
Members of the club have gathered donations for the shelter for over 25 years, according to Jack Jean, lead Beta Club sponsor. This year, 100 club members donated over $750 worth of pet food, litter, cleaning supplies, pet toys, paper towels, bleach and ammonia, scoopers, and other items requested by the shelter.
The project was undertaken by the Beta Club officers, including President Taylor Wiseman, Vice President Mattie McCulloch, Secretary Bailey Osgood, Treasurer Jordyn Atkinson, and Sergeant-at-Arms Amanda Bowden; and Beta sponsors, Chairman and Membership Director Jack Jean, Projects Director Andrew Arnold, Activities Co-Director Faye Hill, and Activities Co-Director Angel Howell.
The National Beta Club is an academic honor organization, which stresses service to the school and community. The LCHS Beta Club charter has been active since January 1945, continuing through three high school buildings serving the county, Lincoln County Central High from 1945 to 1952, Fayetteville Central High from 1952 to 1979, and the current Lincoln County High School from 1979 to present.
