Zeta Rho chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met in the home of Anita Black on Tuesday, March 13th, to elect officers for the coming year and to confer honorary degrees for years of service in Beta Sigma Phi.
President Donna Glover led members in the opening ritual, and Secretary Vicki Black called roll and read the minutes from the previous meeting.
Pat Young gave the treasurer’s report, and committee reports were then given.
Discussion followed about next month’s joint meeting with Xi Omicron Xi at Founder’s Day, tentatively set for April 17th, and nominations for Woman of the Year were considered. Members then voted on Zeta Rho’s Member of the Year.
Officers were elected for the coming year. Donna Glover will serve as president along with Pat Angeley, vice-president; Vicki Black, secretary; Pat Young, treasurer; and Sheila Stevenson and Sandi Chitwood as city council representatives.
Members then enjoyed carrot cake, mixed nuts, coffee and tea provided by Anita Black and co-hostess Alice Liles.
The conferring of degrees to members of long standing in the sorority was then conducted by Donna Glover and Melba King. The Ritual of Jewels was presented to Pat Angeley, the Preceptor degree was given to Anita Black, and Melba King received the degree of Laureate. The degree of Masters was awarded to Cindy Barrett, Lynne Box, Sheila Stevenson, Pat Young, Vicki Black, Sandi Chitwood, Barbara Finney, Cindy Purdy, Sherri Shipman, and Rickie Warren.
The highest degree awarded is that of the Torchbearer and that was presented to Vicki Black, Sandi Chitwood, Barbara Finney, Sherri Shipman, and Sheila Stevenson.
After the rituals were recited, President Glover led the group in the Mizpah, and members enjoyed last minute visiting and bid a final goodbye to Barbara Finney who will be moving to Robson Ranch near Denton at the end of March.
