My posts have been few and far between recently and I apologize. I’ve been away from home. Congratulations to two special NPC women who were honored at the recent NPC meeting in Denver:
Betty Quick, Gamma Phi Beta, and former Chairman of NPC, received the NPC Distinguished Service Award. Betty is also a P.E.O. Congratulations, Betty!
Ginny Carroll of InGINuity was the recipient of the Interfraternal Partner Award. She is an Alpha Xi Delta and the founder of the Circle of Sisterhood. Congratulations, Ginny!
It’s also Sigma Phi Epsilon’s Founders’ Day. My second favorite Sig Ep is Theodor Seuss Geisel. My favorite Sig Ep is my husband, Dan.
Last week I headed to western Illinois. I was in Peoria for a night, talking to the Bradley University Pi Phis about Pi Phi and NPC history.
Then I was on to the Holt House meeting in Monmouth. I had just enough time to make a quick stop at Knox College to see the cornerstone of the Lombard College Alpha Xi Delta chapter house. Prior to the renovation of Knox’s Alumni Hall, the cornerstone resided on the lawn in back of the building. It was put in the storage when the renovations began. The plaque, along with the Lombard College bell and other plaque were recently given a new home, on the south corner of the front of Alumni Hall. Alpha Xi was founded at Lombard College.
I then headed quickly to Monmouth where I toured Stewart House, Kappa Kappa Gamma’s founding site again, just because.
