The Oxford Award - The Oxford Award recognizes alumnae who exemplify the Delta Gamma philosophy of community service through volunteer and philanthropic activities. Recipients bring a sense of pride to their alumnae groups through outstanding community efforts and involvement. Lucinda Rice-Petrie, Mu-Missouri, received the Oxford Award in 2015 in recognition of her lifetime commitment to “Doing Good” as a tireless volunteer and philanthropic powerhouse. Her leadership in the Greater Kansas City alumnae chapter’s fundraising projects, from the House Tour to the Poinsettia Sale and the Plant Sale, is legendary. Her outstanding commitment to the community garnered her recognition as the 2004 Historic Kansas City Volunteer Service Award recipient. She was also made the 2007 Honorary Member of the Kansas City Young Matrons for exceptional service, and has received numerous other accolades for her volunteer spirit. Lucinda has contributed mightily to her chapter of Initiation, serving on the House Corporation Board with distinction meriting her receipt of the Eurethe Grant Doane Alumnae Award from the Mu House Corporation in 2011. Lucinda makes all who know her proud to say, “Why, yes, she is a Delta Gamma – and she is my sister!”
