Educational Development


The Educational Development Committee is one of the busiest of our chapter and is the foundation of our Five Point Program Thrust. Each year we conduct projects designed to promote excellence in education in our schools and communities. In addition we offer scholarships to graduating high school seniors and merit awards to graduating eighth grade students in memory of two sorors from our chapter.
