NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 10, 2015 — The Alpha Psi chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority received several honors at their national convention in Nashville, Tennessee, this week.
The chapter was awarded first place in the district, which includes 20 chapters, for its involvement and for exemplifying a tremendous service program. The Alpha Psi chapter also won a Spirit of Gamma Sig award, for diligence with its national work, its spirit and involvement in national events and tremendous growth within its membership. The chapter had 114 members during the spring 2015 semester.
“I am really proud of them,” said Joanna Shaver, chapter advisor.
In addition, the chapter’s Project I.M.P.A.C.T. (Individuals Making Progress Across Communities Together) nominations were chosen for the 2015-2017 biennium. These areas, nominated by Alpha Psi, include youth and the arts as well as mental health awareness and advocacy. Project I.M.P.A.C.T. encourages participation by all members and helps to establish relations with other national charitable organizations. Under Project I.M.P.A.C.T., organization members complete community service hours with projects that benefit the chosen areas. Every two years, chapters may nominate areas to support.
Alpha Psi also won Southeast’s Outstanding Student Organization at the 2015 Student Life & Leadership Awards program at Southeast, Shaver said.
