The Lambda Pi chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International recently hosted Carol Horton, faculty member at Baccus Elementary School. She introduced members to BrainGym, a series of simple body movements designed to enhance learning, self-esteem and relaxation.

This brain-based learning program is used in some of the area elementary schools.

In other business, children’s pajamas were collected for the Rainbow Room, Lambda Pi’s designated community outreach. In addition, chapter members “adopted” a caseworker from Child Protective Services.

Chapter president Mellanie Ferguson reminded members of application schedules for International and State Scholarships and Alpha State Leadership Seminar.
