First Vice President Report

Sorors can you feel the excitement in the air? We are wrapping up our 2007/2008 program year with three major events/activities this month: 2008 Debutante Cotillion Ball, Delta Academy & GEMS annual college retreat, and Scholarship interviews. In May and June we will award our scholarships and conduct year end activities for all the youth programs. We would like to thank sorors for their continued support as we prepare our program proposal for next year and document our current year program success for potential national Delta award recognition. The program committee is looking forward to another remarkable year of service to our community.

The Delta Academy committee chaired by Sorors Marena Brown and Candace Higgins wrapped-up the iSpace (robotics) educational component on April 5th and started the Lights! Camera! Action! component on the 5th as well. The girls were excited about both activities and enjoyed the interaction with the guest speakers. The Academy is still looking for speakers with a background in broadcast journalism (TV, radio, or online web casting) for their sessions involving filming and editing video with Media Bridges on May 10 and June 7. If you are willing to volunteer or know of someone who might, please e-mail or call Soror Candice Higgins at 740-707-0682 (cell) or 513-829-1085 (home). You are invited to participate in the Academy’s upcoming activities:

  • April 19th thru 20th - Annual College Retreat, Indiana University
  • April 26th – Great American Cleanup, service event, location TBD
  • May 10th – Lights! Camera! Action! the 1st education component with Media Bridges Corryville Rec., 12-3pm.

The GEMS committee is very enthusiastic about the Annual College Retreat which will take place on this coming weekend April 19th thru 20th at Indiana University. Soror Camille Woods chairperson and the committee have some great activities planned for the young ladies so they are able to experience a little bit of college life and start the process of determining the type of college they would like to attend in the future.

The Social Action committee has been working with Queen City Alumnae to schedule our first political issue awareness form and we decided to partner with the Community Action Agency (CAA) for their annual legislative agenda breakfast. The local, state, and national legislative agendas will be shared during a breakfast on Friday, May 23rd from 8:30AM-10AM, CAA Jordan’s Crossing. Sorors will be serving as hostesses and potentially introduce some of the speakers.

scholarship committee report april 2008
Scholarship Committee ReportApril 2008

The deadline for the scholarship applications was January 31, 2008. Completed applications were to be received or postmarked to the Chapter’s P.O. Box 37285 by January 31, 2008. There were a total of 40 applications received for consideration. Several applications were deemed ineligible due to receiving scholarship materials past the 1/31deadline; GPA fell below the required 2.75 or inadequate information was presented in the packet. The committee has worked very diligently to meticulously review and evaluate all applications using established guidelines. Applications were scored and ranked in the following areas, (Academic, Leadership, Community Service, Essay and Letters of Recommendations) in which 15 scholarship finalists were invited to interview as a final step in the process. Interviews were conducted Thurs., April 10th and Thurs. April 17th. Candidates not considered for an interview have been personally notified via mail correspondence.

The Chapter is prepared to grant three scholarship awards in the amount of $2,500.00 and a final award in the amount of $2,500 from the Delta Gateway Foundation. As a result the Scholarship Committee is extremely pleased and excited about the ability to award $10,000 this year to four very deserving young scholarship recipients. The four winners will be notified by May 1, 2008 and will be invited to attend the upcoming golf outing on May 17th as well as the June Luncheon in order to showcase their accomplishments to our sponsors and sorors!

Committee Observations:
  • We were pleased with the overall attendance and parental involvement. We projected to have up to 80 attendees and exceeded this participation goal.
  • General and concurrent topic sessions included: College Essay writing, Interview Techniques, Mock Interviews, Application Basics, ACT/SAT Test Taking Tips, Top Ten Careers, FASFA, and collegiate & parent panels.
  • The assistance from our workshop partners: DST Queen City, the men of Omega Psi Phi and NSBE members was helpful in the planning for this event and actual coordination and attention to miscellaneous tasks during the day.
  • Refreshments/ food was the greatest expense for the day as copy cost were minimal while most presenters brought copies of their presentations. In addition, several sorors made donations to mitigate expenses.
  • Workshop evaluations were very favorable and there were very few recommendations for improvement. Of those participants, who completed evaluations, 100% of the attendees indicated they would recommend this workshop to others.
  • Many thanks to each and every soror and particularly the scholarship committee members who assisted in many ways as we prepared for this year’s workshop.
