The Alpha Iota Chapter of Alabama Alpha Delta Kappa held its annual lip sync contest in the Wetumpka Elementary School Activity Center Feb. 21.

The duo South Pacific (Lizzy Woodall and Jammaris Bozeman) captured first place in the competition, entertaining the crowd with the old standard, “Honey Bun.” The Dancing Ducks (Caroline Macon, Hailey Halbert, Stanton Yarboro and Connor Bailey) won second place performing “Disco Duck.”

It was a night of entertainment that treated the audience with a variety of past hits, taking them down memory lane. All participants received certificates and the winners were awarded monetary prizes. Alpha Iota extended appreciation to all students for their enthusiastic participation.

Other performers were members of the Wetumpka Elementary School Clown Troupe under the direction of teacher Tina Stoddard and Carnac the Magnificent, played by emcee Roger Olsen with help from his assistant Kim Olsen, Alpha Iota president-elect.

Olsen, pastor at Cedarwood Community Church, also entertained the audience as the emcee. Four celebrities served as judges for the event.

Appreciation is extended  for special entertainment, emcee, judges, Wetumpka Elementary School, sound technicians Tim Barrett and Morgan Chavers, videographer Mark McGee, Keys4U Locksmith, Winn-Dixie, Coaches Corner, Red Lobster, Applebee’s and Zaxby’s.

Proceeds from Puttin’ on the Past help provide two scholarships at Auburn University Montgomery:  the Emily Milner and the Annie May Morris Memorial scholarships. The recipients must be graduates of or teach in Elmore County Schools. These proceeds also support other endeavors by the chapter such as support of Children’s Hospital of Alabama, the Alzheimer’s Association and the St. Jude’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

Alpha Delta Kappa recognizes outstanding women educators, builds fraternal fellowship, promotes educational and charitable projects and activities, sponsors scholarships, furthers and maintains worthy standards in the field of education and cooperates with worthy community programs relating to education and charities.
