The Auburn University Panhellenic Council received three Southeastern Greek Leadership Association, SGLA, awards on February thirteenth for its council’s impact within the community and on Auburn’s campus. These awards include the Campus and Community Relations Award, the Social and Cultural Awareness Award, and the Council Impact Award. SGLA is an organization that works to promote fraternity and sorority life on campuses across the southeast.
Each year, SGLA recognizes the hard work and excellent achievements of councils across the southeast in a variety of categories. The three awards that Auburn Panhellenic received celebrate their hard work in ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, their consistent partnership with Habitat for Humanity, as well as the cultivation of lasting relationships between Panhellenic and Auburn as a whole. Specifically, the Council Impact Award is comprised of three sub-categories: social and cultural awareness, civic and philanthropic engagement, and campus and community relations.
Auburn Panhellenic Council was founded in 1929 and recently celebrated 90 years of Panhellenic at Auburn. It represents the 18 National Panhellenic Conference sororities of Auburn University and consists of three representatives from each sorority: the President, the Panhellenic Delegate, and the Junior Panhellenic Delegate. The Panhellenic Cabinet and Recruitment Executive Board also serve the Panhellenic council. Cabinet consists of seventeen women who coordinate various projects and events such as Greek Sing. Recruitment Executive Board is composed of eight women who serve in positions related to Recruitment. The Panhellenic Council is led by the six members of the Executive Board who oversee the organization representatives, Cabinet, and Recruitment Executive Board.
“I am so incredibly proud and humbled that Auburn Panhellenic was able to receive three awards from the Southeastern Greek Leadership Association, in recognition of the phenomenal work completed by the 2020 Panhellenic community,” said Lady Frances Hamilton, Panhellenic President. “With over 5,000 active members, we are so thrilled to have the opportunity to highlight how Panhellenic has succeeded in creating a profound impact upon the Auburn community.” Lady Frances is appreciative of her role as the president of the Panhellenic Council and honors the work that those have done before her.
