Breaking news! In addition to filling this blog up with stories about philanthropic activities, sisterhoods, and stories about sorority life, we want to recognize girls who go above and beyond being acceptable sorority women.
Each month there will be a sisterhood spotlight where one girl from each house is recognized for excellent scholarship, outstanding community involvement, or a display of true sisterly love.
And let’s be real…who doesn’t get super excited about winning the public spotlight and reading a nice note about themselves?? I think it makes us all stand a little taller 🙂
So if there is a sister that you think deserves some recognition, tell us! Email nominations for the March Sisterhood spotlight in a Facebook message to the University of Montana Panhellenic page or the temporary PR email: get_the_hintt@hotmail .com. There will be a nomination box where you can write nominations coming soon to all houses!
With that being said,
Here’s a quick run down of our February sisterhood spotlight lady:
- Sorority: Kappa Alpha Theta
- Year: Freshman
- Major: Elementary Education
- Favorite Ice Cream: “Fro Yo from U-Swirl, Duh.” 😀
- Favorite Movie: Up (This girl has good taste.)
- Favorite Quote: “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” Audrey Hepburn
Clearly this girl is a keeper because she knows what’s up when it comes to good ice cream, but her choice to volunteer in Africa this summer makes her even more outstanding. She is joining forces with Team Agape: New Life Mission to improve the lives of kids living in Nairobi, Kenya and the Mashuru Mission.
She’ll spend 2 and a half weeks in Africa working with a team to give the local orphanage and kindergarten a “face lift”. The team will re-do the playground too if funds allow. In addition to providing manual labor to improve the kids environment, Chloe will have the opportunity to form relationships with some amazing kids.
“I’m just excited to go love on these kids. They’ve had a rough life and basically come from nothing, but they are still so happy.”
“Agape means unconditional love. We hope to help the kids develop fully both physically and spiritually!” ~Chloe
Chloe’s trip will be funded by her generous, supportive family members and her own hard work leading up to the trip. If anyone feels drawn to donate to the cause, I’m sure the funds would be appreciated. Go ahead and leave a comment on this post to get in contact with Chloe and talk about possible donations!
Chloe know’s that most readers are poor college kids though…so a hug and a wish for safe travels and good luck would be just as appreciated!
Chloe’s leap of faith to change the world for the better is an inspiration to us all. Way to go girl! Your sisters in all sororities are super proud of your courage and compassion 🙂
