Delegates also honored Joe Fearrington, a 61-year-old UNC-Chapel Hill staff member who shepherded students to safety during the recent shooting on campus. Fearrington was in attendance at the Convention.

As part of the annual Community Services project, members and districts donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Association and the American Diabetes Association. They also made donations to the SEANC Scholarship Foundation.
