Summary: The Alpha Theta Chapter, Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, is offering the Gladys H. Yates - Deborah M. Brown Scholarship in an amount of UP TO $1,500.00 to selected graduating honor students from Suffolk schools. This scholarship, known as the Gladys H. Yates - Deborah M. Brown Scholarship, is given to honor the memory of Miss Yates, a teacher who taught in Suffolk Public Schools for many years. Miss Yates, a past president of Alpha Theta Chapter, made many contributions to education. In 2012-2013, the chapter added the name of Deborah M. Brown, daughter of Adele Brown, member of Alpha Theta, and her husband Donald Brown. She was educated in Suffolk Public Schools and Old Dominion University and was a mother of two young sons and a successful accountant. Her life was tragically taken in 2011. This scholarship is a means by which Alpha Theta Chapter has chosen to honor the memories of Miss Yates and Ms. Brown and to encourage study in the field of education.
