Educators Enhance Futures


Last updated 2/27/2019 at 2:51pm

Members and guests of the Gamma Upsilon Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International met recently at College Walk to enjoy fellowship and enhance futures.

Attendees brought their favorite dishes and enjoyed a shared epicurean feast hosted by Jane Bell, Peggy Bayne, Sarah Lee Myracle and Louise Stroup. President’s Day was featured.

The program was presented by Dr. Betsy Burrows and the recipients of last year’s grants. Brevard College student Courtney Sharp told of her excitement in relating to children in her methods courses as well as her eager anticipation of her student teaching this fall. Burrows read letters from the other three grant recipients (Cit Gonzales-Rojas, Trey Brown, and Hannah Reese) who were unable to attend.

The forward-reaching grant program continues, and anyone who is pursuing a career in education may apply by contacting Burrows at

In addition to the routine business of the chapter, President Carolyn Steele led the following discussions:

Peggy Bayne’s “Who Has? I Have!” activity is a good way to teach history, involve all students and create variety in the classroom.

Twenty Christmas gift bags were donated to College Walk Inn residents.

Senate Bills 28 and 5 will help educators and communities.

Gamma Upsilon can promote tourism and general interest in the county by sponsoring an ad in a June Art Expo in Asheville.

The April 11 meeting will include the induction of new members, two officers and the honoring of charter members.
