Members of the Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma met on Saturday, May 9 at Almost Home in Greencastle to celebrate the DKG Founders' Day.

Delta Kappa Gamma is an international society of women educators from around the world.

First Vice President Malinda Mann presented a Founders' Day program, honoring the women who first started the DKG Society.

DKG member Kim Fidler presented a legislative update regarding education bills that are of particular interest to the members.

Each year, the Epsilon Chapter presents a grant-in-aid award to a deserving female student who majors in education. This year, however, there were two recipients.

The first recipient, Ellen Gobert, is majoring in speech/language pathology at Indiana University. Her mother, Laurie Gobert, who teaches at Area 30 Career Center, also attended the meeting.

The second grant-in-aid winner, Hannah Ramey, of St. Joseph's College, was unable to attend the brunch on Saturday. There will be a DKG luncheon at Almost Home to celebrate with Ms. Ramey on Saturday, May 16.
