Delta Kappa Gamma
Camp, Jordan remembered at memorial service
by Staff Reports
Coweta County educators Sally Camp and Sue Jordan were among 57 educators remembered at a memorial service in Macon.
“A Celebration of Life” was held in the atrium of the Austin H. Wilson Conference Centre in Macon on the morning of April 7. The service was one of the final events in the three-day state convention for Psi State, Delta Kappa Gamma.
The service remembered by name Delta Kappa Gamma members who have died since the last state convention. Delta Kappa Gamma is a society for key women educators, and Camp and Jordan were both members of Mu Chapter.
Camp taught Latin and other languages for many years at Newnan High School. Jordan, a charter member of Mu Chapter, was the first fulltime curriculum director for the Newnan City School System.
Dr. Sally Combs sang “On Eagle’s Wings,” and there was music for the prelude, processional and postlude by Dr. Cindy Gibson and flutist Lauren Eckman. Special tributes were given for the three state presidents who had died -- Malissa Cox, Mary Crooks and Page Loyd.
District directors placed long-stemmed roses in clear vases after the names from each district were read.
Among those speaking were Jo Davis, Judy Farrigan, Peggy McCall and Gail Springstead. Dan Bray played “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes as the benediction.
