CHAPTERS IN ACTION

News in this issue comes from the Georgia Xi chapter at Brewton-Parker College, the Texas Eta chapter at Texas State University, the Colorado Theta chapter at Adams State University, and the North Carolina Omega chapter at Livingston College.

The Georgia Xi chapter at Brewton-Parker College participated in and hosted multiple events during the 2013-14 academic year.  Members of the chapter assisted with the college's Historic Village Day in which many of the chapter's current members dressed in authentic era clothing and participated in cooking and crafts.  Members of the chapter also provided a tour of facilities on campus to a class of eighth graders from the community.  In December 2013, the chapter held a Christmas celebration at a local inpatient treatment facility in which they sang carols and provided gifts to 21 developmentally disabled adults.  During the spring semester the chapter assisted with a tutoring program on campus, held an Easter celebration for the same inpatient treatment facility they visited at Christmas, and assisted the college with its alumni day activities.  Dr. Vance Rhoades is the chapter sponsor.

The Texas Eta chapter at Texas State University created an International Dialogue Series during the 2013-14 academic year.  Members of the chapter invited faculty members to participate in discussion regarding current events in an effort to educate students on global matters.  Topics included global security, the crisis in the Ukraine, the industrialization of China, and the conflict in the Middle East.  The Texas Eta chapter also organized a screening of "The Square" documenting the recent events in Egypt.  Members of the chapter also volunteered with the Multicultural Refugee Coalition in Austin, TX several times throughout the year.  The Multicultural Refugee Coalition aims to empower refugees through education and professional development.  The chapter sponsors are Mr. Jeremy Pena and Dr. Dennis Dunn.

The Colorado Theta chapter at Adams State University made a special push in 2013-2014 to develop several social events per semester to provide opportunities for students interact with one another and to promote the chapter in recruiting for membership.  An annual initiation ceremony was held on May 1, 2014.  In October 2013 two student members, Kaitlyn Kruger and Mark Mabry, gave a discussion on gun control during a department-wide social.  In November 2013, Jan C. Vigil, class of 2013 alumni member of the chapter, won election to the Alamosa City Council.  In December 2013, the chapter hosted an event to get to know the new lifetime members and those petitioning for membership.  Chapter president, Mark Mabry, presented a paper at the university's Student Scholar Days and at the Pi Gamma Mu Triennial International Convention and was elected to serve as Student Representative on the International Board of Trustees of Pi Gamma Mu for the 2014-2017 term.  Dr. Edward Crowther is the sponsor of the chapter.

The North Carolina Omega chapter at Livingstone College had a very active year.  The chapter co-sponsored a program in collaboration with the campus honors program to promote scholarly initiatives on campus.  To raise funds the chapter asked faculty and staff to donate materials to make themed literature baskets for silent auction.  The chapter also co-hosted the African American Read-In program with another group on campus.  Attendees read and listened to works read by African American authors.  Over 300 students were in attendance from the college's 1000 student population.  The chapter also hosted a Women's Read-In, which was also had excellent attendance.  The chapter also co-hosted two sessions of the National Endowment for the Humanities Created Equal Project.  Chapter members engaged in panel discussions and facilitated forums to introduce and expose Livingstone College students and the Rowan-Salisbury community to conversations defining freedom and democracy in the United States.  Dr. Toni Sims-Muhammad and Dr. DaTarvia Parrish are the chapter sponsors.
