Brenau is planning to apply for a Phi Beta Kappa chapter when the opportunity is available again in three years. Lessie Smithgall, a long-time Brenau supporter and friend, has offered to host a reception to celebrate both the university’s intention to have a chapter and the long legacy of PBK in Northeast Georgia at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 7, in Sellars Gallery.
The event will include light refreshments, a few comments and some time to interact with each other. Smithgall, a PBK member from UGA who will turn 108 on April 1, is planning to attend the gathering. We will also host representatives from UGA and the Atlanta PBK alumni group at the event.
Please consider joining us to celebrate this initial step toward being a PBK institution and to find out how you can assist during the application process. If you would like to attend, please email Matt Thomas at ude.uanerb@samohtm.
