Demopolis Middle was proud to induct 68 new members to its Junior Beta Club this year. Since requirements include an A-average in all classes, this is indeed a proud moment for our school.  These students are leaders and role models as they participate in many service activities, including Operation Christmas Child, Christmas on the River, school cleanup, and a school talent show.  They also compete at the Junior Beta Club State Convention in Birmingham held every year in the spring.  They have had the honor of winning several competitions at this convention in the past, including the math, art, and science academic competitions, the banner competition, the art competition, and the recycled art competition.  

The 2015-2016 induction was especially significant as it marked the 20th anniversary of Junior Beta at Demopolis Middle School. Retired school counselor Connie Brown was in attendance, as well as Principal Hathcock, Assistant Principal McCall, and Superintendent Kalhoff.
