Nebraska Delta Chapter at Wayne State College

The Nebraska Delta Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu at Wayne State College joined with the College’s Student Senate to present the 19th Annual Festival of Trees.  The festival is a benefit for the Wayne County, Nebraska, “Gifts for Kids” program. 

Participation involved any campus group (club, department, dorm floor, office, sports team, support staff, class, individuals, etc.) putting up and decorating a themed tree in the Kanter Student Center atrium from November 15-December 3, 2021. 

A donation of $12 was required for groups providing their own tree, or $20 for groups wishing to borrow a tree to decorate. 

All donations went toward providing clothing and toys for Wayne County families who otherwise could not afford them.

Dr. Randy Bertolas and Dr. Jean Karlen are the Chapter Faculty Sponsors of the Nebraska Delta Chapter.
