Jabberwock 2018: Capturing the Promise - We are kicking off our 2018 season and would love for you to join us. Click here to visit our program website for more information.



November 10, 2017: We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved Soror, Ruth Hart Harris. Soror Harris was a faithful member of the Wilson Alumnae Chapter for over 28 years. She departed this earthly life on November 7, 2017.

Mrs. Harris loved children and her love was evident in her career as an outstanding educator for many years in Wilson County Schools. Mrs. Harris was extremely creative and she enjoyed sharing her passion for artwork and crafts with her students.  She retired from Wells Elementary School.  Her greatest joy was decorating for Christmas and giving away hand crafted gifts to students, family and friends.

Mrs. Harris was a lifelong member of Calvary Presbyterian Church (USA) and served in many leadership roles including Elder on the Session.  She chaired various committees and led numerous special events like Black History Month programs, Vacation Bible School, and the Hanging of the Greens.  Mrs. Harris was a devoted member of Calvary and was very close to many in the congregation.  Her active service in the church was marked by her work with youth, especially early on when she organized a Girl Scouts troop at Calvary.  In most recent years, as part of the Evangelism committee, she helped to create the Tender Loving Care (TLC) ministry, which was near and dear to her heart.  Her involvement with and tireless commitment to TLC brought joy to senior citizens from all across Wilson for several years.

Mrs. Harris had a gentle, kind-hearted, but tough-as-nails spirit.  She openly and frequently shared her gift for giving and doing for others.  She was a member of Concerned Parents of Wilson, Inc., a non-profit organization that founded and funded Kiddie Kollege of Knowledge in the late 1960s-early 70s to provide quality private Kindergarten education for African American children in Wilson.  Mrs. Harris was also instrumental in establishing the Darden Alumni Association, and for as long as her health allowed, served as a board member of the Arts Council of Wilson, the Freeman Roundhouse, and Dee’s House, Inc. 

Funeral services will be held at Calvary Presbyterian Church on November 10 at 11am. Her Omega Omega ceremony will begin at 9:30am

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Dee’s House, Inc., Wilson, NC.



October 23, 2017: With a heavy heart, we announce the passing of Soror Bertha Carroll. A past president of the Wilson Alumnae Chapter, she served Delta for more than 47 years. She was 102 years old.

Congratulations to our Soror, Dr. Christine Fitch!

Chair of the Wilson County Board of Education, Dr. Christine Fitch, was just named this year's Raleigh Dingman Award winner at the annual North Carolina School Boards Association conference. This is the highest honor bestowed on a North Carolina school board member each year. Since 2003, recipients of this honor have served as an ex-officio member of the NC State Board of Education and the NCSBA Board of Directors. The honoree will be expected to attend meetings of both organizations.

This is Dr. Fitch's 27th year on the Wilson County Board of Education. She has been instrumental in building the framework for the school system's success and has had a significant impact in the decision making process for countless initiatives, which include the following: establishing levels for student performance higher than state mandates in 1998; working with the Wilson County Commissioners to shorten a five-year technology implementation plan to two-years which resulted in the district receiving the Ohana Foundation Award in 2000; supporting efforts to offer the International Baccalaureate Program at each of the three comprehensive high schools in 2001; approving the implementation of Wilson Early College Academy in partnership with Wilson Community College in 2009; assisting to secure grant funding from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation to open an Autism Academy in 2013; approving funds to expand the Building Leadership and Strengths Together (BLAST) peer-to-peer tutoring program to eight schools in August 2015; supporting Rock Ridge Elementary in its quest to earn 2015 National Blue Ribbon status which was achieved in October 2015; and planning for the Wilson Applied Academy of Technology, the district's second early college, which will open in the fall of 2016.
