Sigma Summer Fun
We would like to welcome back our students from summer vacation! We hope that you enjoyed your summer just as much as we did! Members of the Alpha Rho chapter have been busy working, vacationing and giving back to the community this summer. Here's what they've been up to during the break.
Soror Kiersten Hill spent majority of her time working as a camp counselor at Wonderland Camp. The camp is designed for individuals of all ages with varying disabilities.
"I got to spend time with individuals that society doesn't see as "normal". But the people I met this summer changed my life in ways I can't even imagine," said Kiersten.
Soror Hill was challenged every week and was forced our of her comfort zone. In the end, it was clear that love and care can really go a long way. Her favorite memory from the summer was when the entire camp sung happy birthday to her to celebrate her 21st birthday. Although surrounded by people she had not known very long, she felt loved and appreciated on her special day.
Soror Jasmine Fultz continued to do the work of Sigma even during summer break. She competed in her first stroll off competition at the annual Kansas City Greek Picnic. She enjoyed bonding, working hard and making life long memories with new sorors. Soror Fultz also enjoyed a well deserved 5 day cruise to Jamaica with family and friends.
Soror Tiera Montgomery worked as a Channel Media Manager at VML in Kansas City. VML is an award winning digital marketing, advertising and transformational agency. She enjoyed working with a diverse group of people, lending a hand in a variety of tasks and made memories that she will never forget. Soror Montgomery is entering her senior year feeling empowered, confident and eager to continue to learn about the industry and what it takes to be successful.
Soror Micah Jenkins enjoyed her summer break back in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. She often worked part time in her family's restaurant, Cathy's Kitchen. She spent quality time with friends and family and even fit in a trip to Disney World during her summer vacation.
Soror Mya Coley spent time this summer in the sky! She was blessed with the opportunity of becoming a Tuskegee Next Cadet. This scholarship program allowed her to get flight training and obtain her private pilot license. Her favorite memory was meeting a Tuskegee Airmen, seeing the P 51 Mustange and becoming apart of the Tuskegee legacy. She hopes to continue to inspire other minorities to follow their dreams so that the legacy can continue to grow.
Soror Angie Descollines' favorite moment from the summer was attending a family wedding. The day brought back many memories of when she lived in Rhode Island. The familiar faces, music, laughter and food reminded her of the past. Although bitter sweet, she was happy to catch up with everyone and still enjoy each other's company after so much time had passed.
