Chapman has been elected to receive the 33rd Degree in the Scottish Rite, one of the highest honors that a Mason can receive on the national level.
The last 33rd Degree Mason from the Lassen Lodge was George Van Tassel in 1983 and this year in the 22 county region only three members were honored with the Degree.
