The 70th Biennial Convention of Delta Gamma in Philadelphia was amazing! Pittsburgh South Hills alumnae chapter were recognized regionally and internationally for all the amazing contributions of our chapter and chapter members to the Delta Gamma “Do Good Sisterhood!”
We received 2 National Awards at Delta Gamma Convention’s Awards Banquet. The Collumnae Award and the Outstanding Alumnae Chapter Division 1 Award!
- Collumnae Award: This award recognizes the alumnae chapter whose relationship with a collegiate chapter displays a quality of communication and interaction of value to both groups; involves a high percentage of the collegiate and alumnae members, and accomplishes the goals set forth by both groups.
- Outstanding Alumnae Chapter Award: Judged in three categories determined by the average number of local dues-paying members during the biennium, this award is presented to alumnae chapters that are outstanding in all areas of endeavor and exemplify the living applications of the Delta Gamma Philosophy.
As a result of winning the Outstanding Alumnae Chapter Award, the Delta Gamma Foundation will receive a donation on behalf of our chapter to be used for Service for Sight Grants.
