Graves County Middle School eighth grader and president of the Jr. Beta Club this past year, Carson McKee, recently won the John W. Harris Leadership Award from The National Beta Club.
The Harris Award recognizes outstanding leadership exhibited by its members and recognizes only 25 members of the National Junior Beta Club. Recipients receive a leadership award, certificate, and paid tuition to the Broyhill Leadership Conference.
Jr. Beta sponsor Kelly Locker nominated McKee for the award. "With her leadership this year, our Jr. Beta club raised over $4,400 for various charities and put in over 600 community service hours. I am very proud of her accomplishments and know that she is very deserving of this award," Locker said.
