LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Gamma Theta has been busy in the last year, from bringing home 33 new members during Fall 18 recruitment, to watching 6 sisters graduate in the Fall commencement, and 24 sisters graduate in the Spring commencement ceremonies. We were sad to let Fall 15 go but are so excited to see how their kind hearts and hard work ethic impact the world!
In the fall, we had great success with our now annual Chi O Chili Cook-Off! Aside from involving students, parents, faculty and community members alike, we are excited to say we raised $23,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation. In the spring we held our campus-wide dodgeball tournament, in honor of sisters Kelly Harty and Dori Hundley Dietrich. With over 30 teams participating, we raised $2000 for the American Cancer Society. From other events such as cooking meals for the Ronald McDonald House, helping with God’s pantry donations, hosting a toy drive for local Madison County children and more, we had a huge year of giving back to the community that has given so much to us.
Gamma Theta’s sisterhood is strong and has had a year full of celebration as well. We started the year off right, by hosting a Sisterhood Spectacular Weekend in September, where we spent the weekend together doing Chi-O Karaoke, eating Insomnia Cookies, heading to the pumpkin patch, and so much more. We ended the year celebrating 50 years of Gamma Theta, with our 50th Anniversary weekend in April. From Keeneland fun to the dedication of the beautiful stained-glass windows that will surely shine the light of Chi Omega on to EKU’s ever growing and beautiful campus for generations to come to the elegant banquet recognizing the accomplishments we have all had a hand in, I was humbled and honored to meet so many outstanding alumnae sisters and reminded of what being a Gamma Theta sister truly means. And all I know is that I cannot wait to be reunited again to celebrate 75 years of Gamma Theta.
Until next time, in Chi O Love and All of Mine,
