Following Women’s History month, Judy Krebaum offered a program about modern women inventors at the April 4 Preceptor Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi meeting. 

Although they only hold 13% of patents globally, women have made many important contributions to the comfort, welfare, and advancement of society, she said. Some commonly known inventions listed were: Car heater, life raft, fire escape, medical syringe, dishwasher and electric refrigerator. 

Women also shared in modern inventions such as closed-circuit television (CCTV), computer software and algorithms, and telecommunications technology. 

Brenda Black offered a program about the history and trivia of Easter Traditions after which members shared some of their own Easter memories and traditions. 

Preceptor Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi will be hosting Founder’s Day on April 25. Besides the other active Chapter, Xi Delta Upsilon, the members of the former Laureate Kappa and Theta Master Chapters will also attend.
