Lorah S. Monroe Award

Awarded to the chapter with the best implementation of the Promise program during the designated new member period and new initiate period.


Epsilon Eta, The University of Findlay

Epsilon Eta Chapter was identified as having a strong new member program and recommended by the programming coordinator and director of district programming. Epsilon Eta selected a new member of the week to be featured on the chapter’s social media, hosted a dinner for new members and alumnae at which each new member was paired with an alumna, so she could learn about life after college. At the end of the new member period, each new member was presented with an award that correlated to her personality and/or some key characteristic of Sigma Kappa. Awards were based on Sigma Kappa’s values, founders, and symbols. During Inspiration Days, new members were grouped based on their learning style to learn the songs and prayer. All potential big sisters attended and participated in big/little bonding nights the first two weeks of the new member period to allow everyone to get to know each other better.
