O'Neal Junior Beta Club Inducts Two New Members
The O'Neal School inducted new members of the Junior Beta Society Friday, April 4. The new members are Grant King, son of Dr. Stephen King and Dr. Candace King of Southern Pines; and Eric Shelton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Billy Shelton of Pinehurst.
O'Neal senior Josh Wolonick was the guest speaker. During the ceremony, candles were lit representing the four virtues of the Jr. Beta Club which are: Service, Leadership, Scholarship and Honor. Current members then "tapped" the inductees, and all of the members then recited the Junior Beta Pledge.
To be eligible for membership, a student must have an average academic grade of A- with no grade below B+ for English, math, science, history and foreign language for the last two trimesters at O'Neal and must be approved by 75 percent of the faculty.

It is dedicated to the development of academic excellence, strength of character, and physical well-being of its students in an environment where self-discipline, integrity, and consideration for others are fundamental.
