DKG in the News...
Excited to share the good news about a new member, Dorothie Johnson Willson, from Scotts Creek Elementary school, who is transferring her membership to Alpha Iota. She hosted a WCU intern last semester who nominated her for Outstanding Clinical Educator. After voting, she was awarded this honorable award from Western Carolina University! #GoCats

Andrew Wade Receives DKG Friend of Education Award from Alpha Gamma Chapter
Mr. Andrew Wade of Bubbles Car Wash received the first annual Friend of Education Award presented by the Alpha Gamma Chapter of DKG. Mr. Wade has generously donated to Alpha Gamma’s annual Beginning Teachers project for years.
Each January, Alpha Gamma members fill bags of materials and gift cards for first year teachers in both Avery and Watauga counties. The organization chose this time of year because teacher supplies are often running low or disappearing completely. Since new teachers are often expected to replenish their own supplies, Alpha Gamma hopes this makes their new year a little brighter!
As the son of a teacher, Mr. Wade is well aware of teacher needs. Susan Phipps, membership chairperson, was delighted to present the plaque to Mr. Wade and share how much his donations are appreciated!
