The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Beta Lambda Chapter, hosted an evening of entertainment in Winston-Salem.  Parkland High School was the site of the seventh annual Broadway Best Spectacular.  The event, titled “Winston-Salem Soundtrack,” was hosted by members Dr. Patsy O. Squire and Ann Moye, both former presidents of the organization.

“Winston-Salem Soundtrack” showcased the talent of a number of students from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system.  The event remained true to promoting the highest ideas of the teaching profession, fostering sisterhood and supporting young people in the schools.  Elementary schools represented were Griffith, Hall-Woodward, Kimberley Park, Kimmel Farm, Konnoak and Carter G. Woodson.  Flat Rock, Mineral Springs, Northwest and special guest school Jamestown from Greensboro, rounded out middle school representation. Parkland and Reynolds represented high schools.

Participants sang songs, danced, performed skits, gymnastic routines and recitations in hopes of winning the night’s first-place prize of $100.  Second-place prize was $50 and third-place prize was $25.

The three judges, Dr. Myron Brown, Todd Corley and Julie Hunter, tallied votes and decided on winners.  The first-place prize was awarded to the Griffith Bulldog Stompers of Griffith Elementary School. The second-place prize went to I’Zaah Jones, student at Reynolds High School and the third-place prize went to T&C Productions, a mime group from Union Baptist Church, a local church in the city.

The festivities also included a fashion show, featuring men of all ages, who strutted on stage in their stylish outfits with much audience appreciation.

As the program ended, students and educators took to the stage to listen to an affirmation from Norma Corley, Beta Lambda member, and to participate in a group dance.

The night was filled with love, laughter, and talent galore.  According to the president of the organization, Donna Mickens, a grand time was had by all on Saturday, Jan. 13.
