National Beta is proud to announce Hannah Smith of Magazine High School, as a 2017-2018 Leadership Representative.

This award is given annually to deserving National Beta members who best demonstrate quality leadership through effective team work, inspiration to fellow peers, a courageous attitude, and an honest character.

Smith was one of three senior Beta members who received this honor. Winners were announced during National Beta’s Leadership Summit in Arkansas wherein Beta members gathered for leadership training.

During this two-day summit, members participated in leadership activities focused on personal growth, identifying values, development of character, and connection to their communities.

As part of her duties as Leadership Representative, Smith will represent National Beta at the 2018-2019 leadership summit in Arkansas, promote Beta as part of organizational growth initiatives, and be an advocate for leadership opportunities in her community.

National Beta looks forward to introducing her at the upcoming state convention in Arkansas. Smith may also take part in the national convention this summer in Savannah, Ga., where she will interview for the role of National Leadership Representative.
