MONTROSE — Lansdale Shaffmaster, Ph.D., of North Abington Township, was presented the sixth Beta Rho Achievement Award during the Beta Rho Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society’s December meeting at Dreyer Hall.
The chapter award is given to recognize and honor a member who has given distinguished and outstanding service to Beta Rho Chapter and has promoted the purposes and policies of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International.
Mary Ann Cunningham conducted the pinning of the award.
Shaffmaster was on the original committee to develop guidelines and was instrumental in designing the pin, working with the Jewelry Room in Clarks Summit.
The retired Keystone College Early Childhood Education professor served as the chapter president and chaired several chapter committees throughout her 31 years of membership. She currently co-chairs the Strategic Action Plan Committee. She has also attended the society’s fall area conferences, state conventions, regional conferences and international conventions. She was initiated when the Beta Rho Chapter was installed in May 1984 at Shadowbrook in Tunkhannock.
