Hopewell Middle School student and Jr. Beta Club President Nico Leis recently won the John W. Harris Leadership award after being nominated by his two Jr. Beta sponsor teachers, Erin Bolling and Stephanie Sosebee. Click here to read their nomination essay.

He was one of just 25 Jr. Betas out of 420,000 members. He also received a full tuition scholarship to attend the Broyhill Leadership academy held every summer by the Beta National Association.

Leis received the award in front of 5,000 Georgia Jr. Betas Nov. 18 at the Georgia Jr. Beta Convention in Macon, Georgia. It was presented to him by Judy Cummings, the National Jr. Beta Sponsor.

Leis said he is most excited about the recognition because it has brought attention to his current charitable drive for the Family Haven Shelter in Cumming. He is collecting paper towels, toilet paper, diapers of all sizes and laundry detergent.
