Alaska State DKG Achievement Award
Achievement Award Winner
Mary Ann Curtis
And the winner is...
It is my pleasure to announce the recipient of this biennium’s State Achievement Award. I am sorry that under these unusual circumstances, we cannot make this presentation in person. Per the State’s Standing Rule J.4, I shall send the medallion to the recipient’s chapter President for physical presentation at their next chapter event. The medallion being awarded this year originally was given to Pat Dart, Zeta, and was returned to the State upon her passing.
Our sister nominee has a masters in Library Science and has taught at the middle and high school level. Although retired, she continues to take classes to keep her teaching certificate active.
This individual has been a member of DKG for 16 years and has held several elected offices and committee positions in her chapter, as well as acting protem for officers on an as needed basis.
At the State level, this sister has served multiple terms on the Nominations Committee, Communications Committee, and has worked tirelessly as the Nuggets Editor.
Civically, this member has served on and/or volunteered with the State Library Board, Clay Street Cemetery Commission, Genealogical Society, UAW, Noel Wien Library, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
By unanimous vote, I am pleased to present the State Achievement Award to Aldean Kilbourn of Theta Chapter, Fairbanks. Congratulations Aldean!!
