March Business Meeting
Nu Chapter held their March business meeting on Saturday, March 7, 2020, at the First Presbyterian Church in Newton. The chapter recognized their achievement points for the NC DKG Chapter Achievement Award and made contributions to the Region VII convention project - NC DKG Headquarters. Kerri Wimberly, a Nu member for less than seven years, was recognized as the chapter's Shining Star. She has also been nominated for the NC DKG Rising Star award. The NC DKG Golden Key nomination was a surprise for Amanda Moose who has served Nu Chapter and NC DKG in numerous roles. The 2020-2022 chapter officers were installed by out-going president Martha Brown.
Following the business meeting, Nu Chapter joined Gamma Phi for the Ceremony of Remembrance for Monteen Fox, a question-and-answer panel of North Carolina legislators and candidates, and enjoyed a delicious salad luncheon.
