CRESTVIEW — Beta Sigma Phi’s Epsilon Master Chapter presented a candlelight ritual to honor Nancy Snyder as Laureate. The degree — awarded to sorority members who study in the program for eight years — is the non-academic sorority’s fifth degree.
Snyder also was named Woman of the Year for outstanding service.
Nu Phi Mu, Beta Sigma Phi’s first degree, was awarded to Jacque Irby. Following her completion of “Invitation to Life,” a required study for each new group member, she will be pinned in the Ritual of Jewels.
Katherine Evans received the Exemplar, third degree, which requires four years of good-standing membership.
2012 elected officers for the Epsilon Master Chapter are Reta Johns, president; Judith Creech, vice president; Dianne Love, recording secretary; Maxine Eliason, treasurer; and Evans, corresponding secretary.
