This week (November 13 – 17, 2017) is the second annual Sisters Serve the World Week, where we highlight the extraordinary impact Chi Omegas make in their communities, on their campuses, and for our national community service alliance, Make-A-Wish. Read the stories of just a few of our extraordinary Sisters, below!
Nicole Smith (Alpha Lambda | Valparaiso). Nicole began a day of service and acts of kindness in honor or her daughter, Olive, who lived a short but meaningful life. Nicole also brings attention to infant bereavement and parenting and pregnancy loss through speaking engagements and writing contributions.
Mary Evelyn White and Mary Anne Culpepper (both Iota | Texas). Both Sisters began advising at Xi Kappa | A&M in its infancy, more than 40 years ago, and have led the chapter to become one of the highest performing chapters at one of the largest schools in the state.
Dr. Jennifer McQuade (Lambda Gamma | Virginia). Known as one of “Harvey’s Heroes,” Sister McQuade helped mobilize medical efforts in Houston after the devastating Hurricane Harvey hit earlier this fall.
DeAnne Wingate (Upsilon Beta | Rollins College). After extensive travel abroad, DeAnne saw the need to help eradicate the exploitation of children. She established a non-profit to help fight human trafficking and child labor through education.
Esther Willis-Schroeder (Zeta Gamma | College of Charleston). This Sister became involved with Make-A-Wish as a collegian and has since made a career of granting wishes and raising money for this incredible organization.
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.
