North Carolina: Westover Mills Virtual Farm Tour

October 26th, 2020, eight members of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta tuned into a live virtual tour of the Westover Mill. Located in Maryland, this feed mill is operated by Mountaire farms. Members heard from John Stainbrook about the ins and outs of the Mill. He went over over how the pellets are made and what his roles are within the Westover Mill. Brother Davis recently landed a job with Mountaire farms as a management trainee and offered to host this exclusive tour for the Brotherhood. Thank you to Brother Davis, Mr. Stainbrook and Brother Barber for giving us the opportunity to learn about this facet of agriculture.

NC Chapter Hold’s Rush/ Information Session for Potential New Members

NC Chapter Hold’s Rush/ Information Session for Potential New Members

On October 6th and 7th, 2020, the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta held Rush via Zoom to foster interest in the Fraternity. Both nights, our committee heads and officers spoke about our activities and why we all enjoy being a part of Alpha Zeta. It was exciting to see a few potential new members, answer their questions and as well get a reminder of why we all love this Brotherhood so much. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on NC State’s campus, the Fraternity has decided to postpone Fall New Member Education Week until next Spring but still held Rush to prepare. Thank you to all active members and advisors who shared their sentiment for our organization and gave a warm welcome to these potential new members. And a bigger thank you to Censor Cowles who organized and made this event a success!
