Awards and Recognition


International Convention

Summer 2023

In the summer of 2023, Kappa Tau had the honor of sending 4 members to the international convention at the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. Maddy Leaphart- 2023 Chapter President, Kyra Greely- 2023 Director of Philanthropy, Gamma Chi- Vice President of Programming and Enrichment, and Gamma Chi- Recruitment Round Coordinator and Membership Integrity Coordinator were the 4 honored members that were able to attend. They were able to participate in leadership sessions which taught them how to excel in their office, become a better sister, and become better recruiters. 

Kappa Tau was given multiple awards which proved all of our hard work had paid off. The members even got to meet many alumni, like Pattie Dowie, who was awarded the Adele K Hinton Award. Seeing the lasting legacy of AOII in these womens lives inspired them, and showed them that AOII really is a living, lasting, organization. Kappa Tau can not wait to return next summer, and so many members are encouraged to go and lead.
