Gamma Beta Phi visits home for female veterans

Gamma Beta Phi, the academic honor society at Beaufort County Community College, had a chance to tour the Pamlico Rose Institute for Sustainable Culture’s Rose Haven house during a visit to deliver funds the organization raised throughout the year.

PRISC provides transitional housing to female veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Rose Haven is an historic house on East Third Street that will serve as a home and therapy center for these deserving veterans. PRISC is currently rehabilitating the house.

Gamma Beta Phi sold “boots” during the holiday season to friends, family, employees and students. The group displayed these “boots,” tickets shaped like combat boots, on the windows of the student lounge. Each ticket is also memorialized in honor of a veteran or service member of our purchasers’ choosing. Gamma Beta Phi raised more than $522 to support PRISC.

“Y’all worked hard, succeeded magnificently, and deserve the honor,” Dr. Keith Lyon, faculty advisor, told the student group. “Your orientation towards community, to something bigger than themselves, is commendable.”

Dr. Dave Loope, president of BCCC, Dr. Crystal Ange, vice president of academics, Lisa Hill, dean of arts and sciences, and Theresa Edwards, student activities coordinator, met students at the Rose Haven location as Dr. Robert Greene Sands, CEO of PRISC, and David Steckel, project manager, took them through the gutted house. Sands presented a painted commemorative brick to the group to honor their contribution.
