Some of our recent activities:
On May 4, we honored our sister, Linda S, for her 50 years of membership in Delta Kappa Gamma!!! What an amazing accomplishment, Linda. We are so grateful for your many contributions over the years.
In April, 2019, we had a joint meeting with Chi chapter. Our special music was the Grayson County High School String Band, under the direction of Mr. Eddie Bond. They are an impressive group of musicians who have a professional sound. They are also regular high school students (some are already in college) dedicated to their art. This was a treat for Alpha Zeta!
In March, 2019, our program was about Barter Theatre's Project REAL. This program, the brainchild of our guest, Megan A. Hamilton, brings activities from the stage to the classroom. Students discover that they can learn anything from Math to French through various activities, such as movement, challenging discussions, and improvisation.
In February, 2019, our guest speaker was Chad M, from Abuse Alternatives. He explained how our chapter could make a difference through our annual donations of gift cards, volunteering opportunities, and spreading the word about the organization's good works.
In November, 2018, committees met to update plans for the remainder of the year. We set goals, confirmed monthly projects, and reignited the desire to help Alpha Zeta make a positive impact.
In October, 2018, Media Specialist, Lindsay G, of Kingsport City Schools, talked to us about her innovative methods of incorporating technology--in the form of coding and programming--into the library of her elementary school.
Dr. Ramsey White was our guest speaker in September, 2018. He is the coordinator for the College for Older Adults at the Higher Ed Center in Abingdon. The COA is extremely popular with adults from all walks of life. Check out the schedule, how to register for classes, and dates for future six-week terms at www.swcenter.edu/coa/.
