Monmouth College’s Beta Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta earned several awards at the organization’s annual convention in San Francisco last month.
The chapter was one of only five nationally to receive the Xi Achievement Certificate of Merit Award, which recognizes chapters that have grown, thrived and improved in all operations. The chapter’s advisory board received the Harriet Hitchcock Holtman Award in conjunction with the Xi Achievement honor.
The women of AXD maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher for both semesters in 2012, earning them an Academic Achievement Excellence Award. They also received the Financial Efficiency Award and turned in at least 85 percent of their reports on time to the national office to receive the Order of the Quill.
“Setting high standards for an organization is an important component to ensuring its success,” said Billy Bernard, MC’s assistant director of Greek life, leadership and involvement. “Earning these awards at the national level demonstrates the commitment to excellence that the women of Alpha Xi Delta have throughout the year. They have advanced Monmouth’s fraternal movement in a positive manner and represented the college admirably.”
Alpha Xi Delta inspires women to realize their potential by providing opportunities for sisterhood, leadership knowledge and service. Since its founding in 1893, it has grown into a strong organization consisting of more than 150,000 initiated members. Monmouth’s AXD chapter was founded in 1932.
