Nu Chapter held the January business meeting at First Presbyterian Church in Newton. Attendees enjoyed breakfast and fellowship before the 2024 Treasured Roses Ceremony and business meeting.

Donna Rudisill, current Finance Committee chair and former Nu Chapter president, opened the meeting with her "Minute at the Mic." Rudisill shared about the influence DKG membership has had on her life and her pride in how Nu Chapter supports Women educators in the community, helping them to grow both personally and professionally. 

The January meeting of Nu Chapter is a special event, as it includes the chapter's annual Treasured Roses Ceremony, recognizing long-term members for their years of service to the chapter and DKG. This year, Nu Chapter recognized the following 12 women for their years of service and leadership:  Amanda Moose, 20 years; Martha Brown, Marilyn Futrelle, Arlinda Graham, Rebecca Rowe, and June Trivette, 30 years; Diane Creasman and Carol Warren, 35 years; Frances Stafford, 40 years; Irene Craig and Claudia McLean, 45 years, and Nancy Jo Teague, 50 years. A donation was made to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in honor of Teague's 50 years of leadership and service to Nu Chapter and DKG.

The Leadership Development Committee Chair Michelle Shelly and member Lee Ann Perry introduced each honoree. Escorts read tributes detailing the achievements and leadership positions of these dedicated members during their impressive years of service. Each honoree received a service pin, certificate, and a long-stemmed red rose to commemorate the occasion.

The business meeting continued with the President's Report, officer and committee reports, and the introduction of prospective new member Laura Gould. The Nominations Committee presented the nominees for Nu Chapter's 2024-2026 officers:  Regina Propst, president; Allison Patton, first vice president; Thalia Holman, second vice president; Lee Ann Perry, recording secretary, and Carol Propst, corresponding secretary. Amanda Moose will continue to serve as treasurer.

Delta Kappa Gamma is an international honor society that promotes professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.
