LEWISTON — Alpha Psi State of Delta Kappa Gamma International recently awarded their highest honor, the State Achievement Award, to Madelyn Linscott of Mu Chapter.

Linscott began her career in education as a teacher in the primary grades and completed it as an elementary school principal. Initiated into the society in 1959, she served as chairman of many committees in her own chapter, as well as holding the offices of second vice president, first vice president and president. She also served as her chapter’s treasurer for 16 years, from 1978 to 1994.

She has chaired several state committees as well and presently serves on the Alpha Psi State executive board as a past state president. In the past 51 years of her membership in DKG, she has regularly attended and been active in chapter, state, regional and international events.

At last summer’s northeast regional conference in Burlington, Vt., Linscott was one of four women from the Northeast region honored for 50 years of membership and was asked to briefly advise those in attendance at the celebration luncheon about commitment to Delta Kappa Gamma, which she summed up with just two words: “get involved.”
