Wade and Phipps

Susan Phipps, chairperson for the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, presents the plaque for the DKG Friend of Education award to Andrew Wade of Bubbles Car Wash and shared how much his donations to first-year teachers are appreciated.

BOONE — Andrew Wade of Bubbles Car Wash received the first annual Friend of Education Award presented by the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma. Wade has generously donated to Alpha Gamma’s annual Beginning Teachers project for years.

Each January, Alpha Gamma members fill bags of materials and gift cards for first-year teachers in both Avery and Watauga counties. The organization chose this time of year because teacher supplies are often running low by this time of year.

As the son of a teacher, Wade is well aware of teacher needs. Susan Phipps, membership chairperson, was delighted to present the plaque to Wade and share how much his donations are appreciated.
