The Gamma Chi Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International recently brought home several awards from the 80th annual Eta State Convention in Greenville.

The theme of the convention was “Dare to be Courageous!” It was attended by Delta Kappa Gamma delegates from across the state and consisted of business sessions, workshops and various keynote presentations.

One of the awards the chapter received, the Presidential Chapter Achievement Award, recognizes exemplary leadership and promotion of the society’s activities. Only eight chapters out of 106 in North Carolina have received the honor.

The chapter also received the Eta State Newsletter Excellence Award and the Eta State Website Excellence Award.

Gamma Chi member Shirley White received the Region III Golden Key Award.

Nancy Tunstall, the chapter president, gave a presentation entitled “How to Motivate Member Excellence” during a breakout session at the conference, using Gamma Chi as a model chapter.

The late Betsy Brown, a previous member of Gamma Chi, was remembered during a ceremony celebrating the lives of past society members.
