1 year ago : From awards to pageant titles, the ladies of Sigma Kappa Sorority have kept busy during the summer months. The Sigma Kappa Sorority National Convention was held July 11-15 in The Woodlands, Tx. Louisiana Tech University’s Beta Epsilon Chapter sent three current members and one alumna to represent the chapter. President, Mollie Catherine Smith, Vice President of New Member Education, Anna Claire Meeds, Advisory Board Chairman, Katie McKinney and Sisterhood Chairman, Sabra Norris spent the five days getting to know sisters from all different places around the U.S. Beta Epsilon took home several awards. The first was the Academic Achievement Award. This award recognizes chapters who have a record of high academic achievement including obtaining a gpa of 3.0 or above for both initiated members and new members. Beta Epsilon was also ranked in the Three Star Standards of Excellence category. This is Sigma Kappa Sorority's most prestigious collegiate award. It is presented to those chapters who meet all of the Sigma Kappa minimum standards and above. These standards include high performance in areas such as: membership, financial management, philanthropy, scholarship, public relations, ritual, recruitment, leadership, new member education, alumnae relations, and campus involvement. The Alice Hersey Wick Award was presented to the any chapter that is cooperative with Nationals. Reports must be on time to national headquarters and national officers, and the chapter must support all national projects, as well as have a strong recruitment effort. A new award Beta Epsilon received this year was the Excellence in Recruitment Award. This is awarded to the chapter exemplifying excellence in all aspects of recruitment including planning, motivation, implementation, reporting and results. Placed in the Gold Giving Circle, Beta Epsilon was awarded this because of their fundraising efforts of at least $4000 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation in the past year. In addition to awards, Kay Malone was initiated into Sigma Kappa as one of their two Honor Initiates in Sigma Kappa Sorority in its entirity. Beta Epsilon is proud to welcome her to their sisterhood on a local and national level. Beta Epsilon Alumni member, Carol-Beth Land Ivory, was elected to the Sigma Kappa National Council for the next biennium. She will serve as the Vice President of Collegiate Chapters, which is an honor for the local chapter to have this kind of representation in the Council. Aside from its outstanding rank on the national level, Sigma Kappa- Beta Epsilon had three current members compete in the Miss Louisiana Pageant this summer and Lauren Vizza, Pledge Class 2009, won the title. As she accepted her crown, she made her way over to Mallory Cox, Pledge Class 2009, to pass on the crown for Miss Tech. Beta Epsilon is very honored to have two prominent local and statewide representatives in our chapter! As well as President Mollie Catherine Smith representing Beta Epsilon on the local level by obtaining the Greek Woman of the Year Award at Louisiana Tech University. During Fall Recruitment at Louisiana Tech University, Sigma Kappa welcomed 32 new sisters and could not be more excited to watch these ladies learn and grow throughout college! Sigma Kappa-Beta Epsilon is proud of their accomplishments and can not wait to show the community, the state and the nation just what they can do in the upcoming 2012-2013 school year. READ MORE>
