At an April 18 meeting, members of the Zionsville Eta Delta Chapter of Psi Iota Xi had the privilege of learning about The Hoosier Youth ChalleNGe Academy. The HYCA, located in Knightstown, is the Indiana branch of the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program. The mission of the academy is to intervene in and reclaim the lives of 16- to 18-year-old high school dropouts, providing program graduates the values, life skills, education and self-discipline necessary to succeed as productive citizens.

At the meeting, chapter president Lisa Pierce, on behalf of her chapter members, presented a check for $300 to Sharon Fox of The HYCA Library Fund.
