The United Daughters of the Confederacy, William F. Slemons, Chapter 977, won six awards at the UDC state convention last month in Texarkana.
The Slemons chapter won awards for most money donated, most time donated, most southern monuments visited, most southern books donated to a library, and best yearbook. The awards were in the 26-35 member category.
Beth Thurman and Terri Wolfe, pictured above, accepted the awards on behalf of the Slemons chapter.
In other the business, the Slemons chapter was moved from District V to District III to balance the districts with the number of chapters. The group will now be in a district with with Stuttgart, Pine Bluff, and two Little Rock chapters instead of Hot Springs.
Thurman was placed on the Arts and Literature council and will report to both the state and national committee.
The UDC also elected Pam Trammell of Texarkana to run for the national president at the national convention in Richmond. UDC National President Janie Lichen of Florida attended the convention.
Last week, Thurman and Wolfe attended a District III meeting in Little Rock to discuss plans for the new District III and elect officers. Thurman was elected to the Old State House Committee.
The new district will host the 120th state convention in Little Rock next September.
