Houston Chi Omega alumnae gathered with their collegiate sisters of Psi Zeta chapter on Sunday, April 10 at Ousie's Table in honor of Chi Omega's 127th anniversary of its founding at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The festive afternoon of Sisterhood drew over 70 attendees. The celebration included:
- Announcement of our local scholarship recipients: Whitney Thode (Baylor University - Theta Kappa), AnaLisa Villarreal (Texas A&M - Xi Kappa) and Kate Welsh (Texas A&M - Xi Kappa). A total of $8000 in tuition awards was made to these three outstanding collegiate members; thank you, alumnae, for your generous support!
- Recognition of two fifty-year members in attendance: Jeanie Vaughn Janke (Iota) and Kathy Schenck (Psi Zeta). Special congratulations to our two sixty-year Sisters who were unable to join us: Jacquelyn "Jackie" Bramley Greebon (Kappa Zeta) and Nancy Hamil Campbell (Epsilon Delta). Special Note! Jackie was attending the 60-year celebration of the founding of the Kappa Zeta Chapter at Texas Tech over the weekend and was recognized as a Founding Member!
- Celebration and honor to our accomplished 2022 Woman of the Year: Lou Thompson Black (Rho Epsilon)
- Reveal of our theme and date for our next Chi Omega Kaleidoscope bash. Our Kentucky Derby party will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Chair Erin Chambers Packwood (Psi Zeta) enthused the gathering with early plans for another stellar Chi Omega celebration.
Special thanks to Event Chairs Katelyn Karger (Alpha Zeta) and Katie Walmsley (Iota) for a memorable afternoon of joyful reunion and Sisterhood.
