Alice Jean Snyder, Judy Eisaman and Dorothy Sigel, members of Preceptor Gamma Pi chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, progressed to higher degrees. These members met specific criteria for conferment of third and sixth degrees. In an April ritual ceremony, president Nancy Younker conferred the higher degrees.

Snyder, a charter member, and Eisaman were conferred the Master’s Degree, the sixth degree. They had ten years of active membership in Laureate degree and completion of ten years of program work for advancement. Both received the Master degree badges.

Snyder has been a member of the sorority for 45 years, receiving her Ritual of Jewels degree in 1967, and held the office of recording secretary for many years. Eisaman received her Ritual of Jewels degree in 1980 and has served in the offices of president, vice president, treasurer and extension officer. Both Snyder and Eisaman were honored with the Order of Rose and Silver circle, honors designed to express the gratitude and esteem of the chapter for their industry and devotion to Beta Sigma Phi’s ideals.

Sigel was conferred the Exemplar Degree, the third degree. To qualify, she was in good standing for four years of Ritual of Jewels membership, including participation in regular chapter activities and four years of required cultural programs.

Members of Preceptor Gammi Pi recognize the dedication of these members and salute their advancement.
