August 2008 S.H. Letter
It is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve as your new S.H. for the 2008-10 biennium after being elected in St. Louisat Convention 2008 "Gateway to Sisterhood". The excitement and celebration of what our Fraternity has to offer to young women will carry over to each chapter as school begins this fall. As we all prepare for recruitment, I hope you will consider this time as an opportunity for others to experience our "Gateway to Sisterhood".
As a potential new member considers the benefits of Greek life, it is a gateway for them to new friendships, a strong emphasis on scholarship, quality activities, and the opportunity to give back through philanthropy. These bright, outstanding young women will be watching and listening to see if we abide by the high ethical standards to which we profess. As a Chi Omega Sister, you have been identified as a leader; we have the obligation and duty to exhibit ethical behavior in every aspect of recruitment. Our Panhellenic friends will expect and deserve nothing less.
As the song goes:
Are you listening? Chi O's calling you from a day gone by.
You are part of all her yesterdays; hold your head up high.
Building her tomorrows on the spirit of the past.
Are you listening? Chi O's calling you.
And her spirit will last.
We have a trusted and honorable past with our Panhellenic friends. Chi Omega continues to call on you, as a collegiate or alumna member, to make ethical decisions and exhibit ethical behavior at all times. "Answer and her spirit will last" by providing a positive recruitment experience for every potential new member, member of the Panhellenic community, and our own chapter members.
Best wishes for a successful recruitment!
Loyally in Chi Omega,
Letitia Fulkerson, S.H.
