Alpha Phi Chapter Wins Awards at 2007 Regional Conference
MELBOURNE, FLA.– Florida Tech’s Theta Zeta chapter of the international Alpha Phi took home three regional awards at the 2007 Southeastern Regional
Convention. The convention was held in Williamsburg, Va.
First, the chapter was recognized for achieving a 2.80 cumulative grade point average (GPA). This was above the average GPA of 2.73 for all sororities at
Theta Zeta also received the Most Creative Fundraiser award for the annual Duck Dash philanthropy, which raised $1,000. In the Duck Dash, members sell
rubber ducks to the campus community for $5 each. The ducks are then released into a local river, and the duck that reaches the finish line first earns its
owner a $500 prize.
The chapter also was recognized as a Foundation Stretch Goal Achiever for its gift to the Alpha Phi Foundation. Some of the proceeds of the Duck Run were
donated locally, to the Health First Foundation. The remainder was donated to the Alpha Phi Foundation.
Lynn Webb, a member of the Florida Southeastern Specialist Team for Alpha Phi said, “It’s always a pleasure to work with a chapter that is so committed to
achieving philanthropic goals as well as exceeding in the classroom.”
