On the sunny, but cool, late afternoon of Sept. 21, members of Gamma Upsilon Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International picnicked on the outdoor balcony above the main entrance of College Walk Senior Living Community. At the conclusion of their meal, the recognized and heard remarks from two of the three recipients of their annual educational grants.

Citlalmina (Cit) González Rojas is an elementary education major at Brevard College who graduated from Brevard High School. A very active young lady, she is a waitress at her father's restaurant, interprets and translates for local police and sheriff's departments, is an officer at the local rescue squad, and teaches CPR and first aid.

Madeline Magin already possesses a bachelor's degree in Natural Resources Conservation but is ready to graduate from Brevard College in December with a second degree, this one in elementary education. She has lived in New York and Massachusetts but far prefers Western North Carolina. She will begin teaching in January.

Hannah Reese, the third recipient, was unable to attend. She's a Rosman High School graduate who is now enrolled at Greenville University as a student in their teacher education program.

She enjoys sports, religion, honor society and Spanish.

President Amy Winston conducted the group's business and asked Louise Stroup to explain the Ingles Gift Card Program, by which funds for future grants are acquired.

Treasurer Frances Bradburn announced that it's time to pay dues, and Carol Hamann offered the opportunity to mentor first year teachers in the county. Carolyn Steele will explore ways of memorializing former member Nancy Carson.

The next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, at College Walk.
