The Gamma Epsilon chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma International is pleased to recognize Breigh Alexis Campbell as the recipient of its 2018 Daphne Vaughan Scholarship in the amount of $1,000. Breigh is candidate for graduation in from Smithfield High School, and is the daughter of Amanda and Robert Wing of Compass Way, Carrollton.

She was accepted with enthusiasm to Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina, and will begin her freshman year this fall to study education. Breigh was deemed highly eligible by the Scholarship Committee to receive this award as she met all of the established criteria, including the pursuit of a degree in education. In addition, Breigh participated in the Teacher Cadet program at Smithfield High School.

The Gamma Epsilon chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma is a society of local key women educators who join other DKG Sisters at the state, regional, national and international levels in promoting excellence in education.

The Gamma Epsilon scholarship is named for Daphne Vaughan and is made possible through donations of her daughters, memorial donations by other members, and a silent auction fundraiser held by the chapter. Vaughan taught elementary school for over 40 years in the Windsor area of Isle of Wight County. She held many offices in the Gamma Epsilon chapter, including president, and was well-known throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia for her many contributions to Delta Kappa Gamma.
