Congratulations to our scholar of the month for October, Montgomery-Lee Todd of Kappa Kappa Gamma!
" I am a Junior from Portland, OR, majoring in accounting and minoring in Spanish. This year I am going through the accounting recruiting process, and I hope to work in public accounting after college! I have the honor of serving as the PR Chairman for Kappa, as well as the Director of Fundraising for AUDM. I am also currently involved as a member of the Executive Society and as a candidate for Beta Alpha Psi. I am so thankful for all the opportunities I have been given to grow as a student and as a leader while at Auburn, and cannot wait for all that is to come!"
Caroline Shea and Sarah Benton, Director and Assistant Director of Auburn University Panhellenic, presented Auburn Opelika Habitat for Humanity with a +$50,000 check to sponsor building Habitat for Humanity homes in Auburn and Opelika. Pictured (L-R) are Aaron Friend, Tina Cook, Caroline Shea, Sarah Benton, Dan Mason, and Mark Grantham.
Each year Auburn Panhellenic members fundraise through an amazing talent competition known as Greek Sing. Sarah and Caroline led the hundreds of volunteers this year to exceed their goal of $50,000. These students also come out each spring and volunteer to work on our Habitat homes. This year hundreds of volunteers helped frame Auburn Opelika Habitat home #67 at 1419 Branch Street. Also, Auburn University Panhellenic is a major sponsor on Habitat home #68 at 211 Stevens Street, which is designed and built by Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction and the McWhorter School of Building Science to a Zero Energy Ready Home Fortified standard.
"Thank you Caroline and Sarah for your leadership and thank you Auburn University Panhellenic for your consistent support of this ministry. We are truly thankful for everything they have done to give back to this organization and for allowing us to continue to improve our community. Together we build homes, community, and hope."
We are so thankful for the many amazing women that have shaped Auburn Panhellenic over the past 90 years. Here are some photos from the luncheon we had in celebration of 90 years of Auburn Panhellenic! A huge thank you to everyone who came to commemorate with us, we had so much fun!
