During an induction ceremony held November 4, 23 Seaborn Lee fifth-grade students took the National Beta Club oath and received certificates from National Beta Club Field Ambassador Geraldlene Henderson.
Guest speaker Marci Early, a former Seaborn Lee student and current Westlake High School magnet program member, stressed to the students the importance of setting and attaining their goals. Miss Early and Mrs. Henderson, along with the students’ parents, assisted with the pinning ceremony for new inductees.
