The Delta Kappa Gamma Society Iota Chapter has awarded two scholarships to two students seeking education degrees.
This year’s recipients each received a $500 award to continue their studies and include Caroline Noe, an educational psychology major at Mississippi State University and SherRonda Jefferson, an elementary education major at Mississippi Valley State University.
Delta Kappa Gamma is a professional honorary society of key women educators with a mission to “promote professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.”
One of the ways Iota Chapter fulfills its mission is through the Susan P. Berryhill Grant-in-Aid program. The grant-in-aid is a memorial to Clarksdale’s much loved elementary teacher and principal, Susan P. Berryhill.
