Junior Eden Sharp has involved the students in Beta Club in many volunteer opportunities, in and outside of her Environmental focus.

Through her participation in Beta Club, junior Eden Sharp has been able to channel her care for the environment into making a difference in her school and community. She’s been in Beta Club for three years, but this is her first being the club’s Volunteer Director. As part of this role, she organizes and informs students of different volunteer opportunities. She is also the head of the Environmental Volunteer Committee where she focuses on environment-specific causes.

“I like the free reign that I have as the volunteer director because it lets me make a difference in the school with the specific things that I care about,” Sharp said. “ Since I’m in charge of the Environmental area, I am able to focus on something that I’m passionate about while also helping out a greater cause.”
