Hey Hannah here still reporting from the DG Convention final banquet and boy am I excited. Two descendents of Anna Boyd Ellington are here tonight to help present the Founders Award. Franci Boyd Agajanian, Alpha Nu‐USC, and her
Delta Gamma daughter Amy, also from Alpha Nu chapter.
The Founders Award recognizes collegiate chapters for reaching levels of excellence with outstanding programming by fostering high ideals of friendship among college women; promoting their educational and cultural interests; creating in them a true sense of social responsibility; and developing in them the best qualities of character.
The Division I (chapters with up to 65 members) winner Gamma Pi-Roanoke successfully integrated its new member class into the chapter by organizing meaningful firesides with each class focused around a theme. They also mastered multi‐purpose programming. They organized a cup cake decorating sisterhood event and then presented the cupcakes to their advisers as a way to say thank you!
Zeta Gamma‐Richmond won for the Division II category (chapters with 66 to 95 members). They ask each member to write a letter to the new members, sharing what Delta Gamma means to them. What a terrific way to illustrate delta gamma’s purpose!
The Division III (chapters who have 96‐125 members) winning chapter Kappa-Nebraska goes the extra mile to ensure the success of their programming. During a health and wellness Anchors of Discovery event, the chapter utilized the expertise of a member who is a nutrition major to help lead a discussion on healthy eating.
Gamma Zeta‐Louisiana State will be bringing home the Division IV (chapters with 126 or more members) Founders Award for their overall success! They have been recognized with the Panhellenic Sisterhood Award, which is given to one NPC group each year and is selected by the other panhellenic chapters. In addition they ensure continual fraternity education by presenting a DG history fact and ritual fact at each chapter meeting.
