Susan Workman (Rho Kappa | Illinois State). This dynamic Chi Omega community service advisor for Zeta Beta | Arizona has helped the chapter become one of the top Chi Omega fundraising chapters in the country.


Zeta Beta has just wrapped up its last event of 2017, Wings for Wishes, benefitting Make-A-Wish. This is held in conjunction with the Tucson Walk for Wishes. The chapter is most fortunate to have an advisor who has been volunteering in meaningful ways since her college days and that service has continued during her years as an alumna.

When Susan moved to Arizona four years ago, she reached out to both the local Chi Omega chapter and Make-A-Wish to meet people and to serve her community. She began as the Community Service Advisor for Zeta Beta Chapter which fit hand in hand with her later involvement with the local Make-A-Wish Ambassador group.

The most meaningful experience Susan has had as Community Service Advisor was bringing the mom of the first Make-A-Wish child to speak to the chapter members. The young women in the chapter were so touched by this mom’s story and the experience provided them with motivation, dedication and passion to volunteer for Make-A-Wish. “Hearing Linda speak and seeing Wish Kids involved with chapter activities has had a great impact on our collegiate Sisters. The chapter is seeing that their hard work is helping make wishes come true while providing hope to children and their families.”
