Greenville County Schools is proud to announce that J. L. Mann High Academy is a 2020-2021 National Beta School of Distinction. The school earned this recognition by increasing their club’s membership by at least 10 percent from last year.

National Beta School of Distinction is an honor for Beta clubs striving towards academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others. With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership for the current school year. This year, only 14 percent of Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

“J. L. Mann High School is so proud of our chapter of the National Beta Club and believe this recognition as a School of Distinction is well deserved,” said Principal Charles Mayfield. “The students and advisors have volunteered an innumerable number of service hours to help our school and community to be a better place. They are truly living out our motto of Making a Difference!”

In a congratulatory letter to the school, Bobby Hart, CEO said, “This national award speaks highly of your commitment to academic excellence and illustrates your dedication to preparing students for their future.”

Award recipients will receive a National Beta School of Distinction banner to proudly display as a symbol of their accomplishment.
