Alice Christopher and Karen Schepman discussed Phi Beta Psi’s national convention held July 15-18 during a recent meeting of Theta Omega chapter at the Community Foundation of Jackson County in Seymour.
Christopher and Schepman served as the chapter’s delegates to the convention, in Lexington, Ky.
The national sorority voted to give $325,530 in grants to six doctors working on cancer research around the country. It was reported that since 1941, Phi Beta Psi has given $7,641,997 for cancer research.
The theme for the convention was “Kentucky’s Southern Hospitality.” Three new national officers were elected at the convention. They were Patty Law, Federal Way, Wash., second vice president; Katie Stiegelmeier, Venice, Fla., treasurer; and Jan Webster, Salem, editor.
