S.H. Shelley Potter awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award

Chi Omega is proud to announce that S.H. Shelley Potter has been awarded the highest honor one can receive from Texas A&M University – the Distinguished Alumni Award.

The S.H. was surprised with the award on February 23, 2019. Even her husband, Jeff, also a graduate of Texas A&M, was in on the secret. Shelley’s involvement in Chi Omega Fraternity, Texas A&M College of Architecture, the Founding of Texas A&M Chi Omega, Dallas A&M Club, Aggie Women, and countless other accolades all contribute to her well-deserved receiving of this award.

Leslie Herington, Chi Omega Executive Director, described Shelley in her nomination letter as follows, “She works day in and day out, to promote the sorority experience on all college campuses. She is an advocate for the development of young women both academically and socially, and she is an expert on today’s collegiate student leader, constantly studying the characteristics of millennials and centennials.”

Presented jointly by the university and The Association of Former Students, this award recognizes Aggies who have achieved excellence in their chosen professions and made meaningful contributions to Texas A&M University and their local communities.

Shelley truly represents to us what it means to live a life of high purpose and helpfulness, indeed.
