The chapter successfully hosted two large philanthropy events, Do it for the Kids and Phi Set Spike, as well as a simple spare change drive that brought in over $1,000.

BEVERLY PARKES COLLEGIAN OF THE YEAR AWARD

The Beverly Parkes Collegian of the Year Award is presented to a collegiate member who, in her activities and character, personifies the ideals of Phi Sigma Sigma. The candidate must be in good standing with her collegiate chapter and university, and give evidence of forwarding the three goals of Phi Sigma Sigma: advancement of womanhood, lifelong learning and philanthropic service. She shall have achieved a most exemplary record in the last year of her collegiate work, as a senior.


Lauren Bancalari, Gamma Nu Chapter at Rutgers University - New Brunswick

Lauren “Lo” Bancalari is an exemplary Phi Sigma Sigma. She joined Phi Sigma Sigma just before the pandemic campus shut down and lived in the chapter house for three subsequent years. Lo’s entire college experience is centered around her Phi Sigma Sigma membership. She is a two-term executive board member, serving as philanthropy chairman. She raised over $85,000 during her tenure and ensured that the chapter remained a campus leader as the highest fundraiser for Rutgers' Dance Marathon. She developed a strong relationship with the chapter's partner school – Roosevelt Elementary – and was able to work with the chapter to fulfill every request the school brought forward including a tremendously successful toy drive, while Rutgers was operating virtually, that fulfilled all the needs the school had for Christmas presents for families.

Lo is a pre-med student who graduated cum lade from Rutgers - New Brunswick. She worked as a medical assistant to a neurologist and a part time microbiologist at Johnson and Johnson. Her involvement outside of Phi Sigma Sigma is aligned with her passion to study medicine. She has served as Phi Sigma Sigma’s liaison to the RU4Kids Program, which supports children with cancer and rare blood disorders. She also recruited volunteers to serve at monthly Embrace Kids events, such as the recent “Tackle Sickle Cell” Blood Drive at RWJ which collected 173 units of blood and 56 fresh frozen plasma units. Lo also served this past year as president of the Rutgers chapter of Reach Out and Read, a US nonprofit organization that promotes reading. Reach Out and Read is a national early literacy organization working directly with pediatric care providers to share the lifelong benefits that result from families reading aloud to their children every day.

Because of COVID-19, Lo never really had the benefit of learning the “Phi Sig” way to do things. Gamma Nu has a long history of philanthropic leadership and campus leadership at Rutgers. At every opportunity, she has set incredibly high goals for herself – academically, as a leader, as a fundraiser and as a sister. And she has always figured out how to achieve and exceed those goals. Through multiple lockdowns in the sorority house, and learning to do things “in real life” again, Lo has always had a can do, will do attitude. She asks the right questions, makes the right decisions and gets the job done.

Abbi faced some challenges at the beginning of her term as the campus was having issues with the culture of the fraternities.

Jen has been a longtime volunteer for Phi Sigma Sigma. Through her roles and dedication, she has served as a mentor for many Phi Sigma Sigma members. Serving as the CKA for the Gamma Gamma Chapter at Pennsylvania Western University, Clarion for a number of years, she developed a strong mentoring relationship with the collegiate women and inspired many of them to continue on and give back as volunteers themselves. Jen's mentorship has been the reason that a number of Phi Sigma Sigma Fraternity members remain involved as committed volunteers today. Last year during one of the volunteer happy hours, people were chatting about who got them involved with Phi Sig and why they continue to stay involved. During this conversation, numerous sisters named Jen as one of the reasons they became involved as a volunteer.

She quickly established herself as a great resource to the chapter and has worked well with Headquarters. This year in particular, the chapter has struggled with rising costs in Philadelphia and the impact of inflation on their budget. Julia has been a tremendous support, offering ideas for how the chapter can cut costs while still providing its members with a premiere membership experience. Julia quickly picked up on our policies and procedures, and has been able to successfully translate them to our members in a way that is easy to digest.

Theta Chapter Alumnae Group (The University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign)

Alumnae of the Theta Chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign organized a weekend of activities to celebrate the chapter's Centennial. The Steering Committee is comprised of Marcia Bellows (1983), Barbara Rendall Hochstadt (1983), Tracy Solida (1984) and Laurie Wright Salsbury (1983). Beginning in the summer of 2022, the Steering Committee held a weekly Zoom meeting to organize the weekend's activities, which included a Friday night pizza party at the chapter house (April 21); a Saturday luncheon hosting 180 national leaders, local Panhellenic leaders and alumnae (April 22); a Saturday night dinner for two groups of alumnae at local restaurants; and a farewell breakfast on Sunday, April 23 at the chapter house. Working with Headquarters staff, the group also developed graphics that can be adapted by other chapters for their future uses. This event connected alumnae from the 1960s to the 2020s. Sisters who have not seen each other since college were reunited. This milestone anniversary also was the impetus to establish the Theta Chapter Centennial Scholarship with the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, and fundraising has begun this year.


Gamma Delta Chapter Alumnae Group (Rutgers University - Camden)

Alumnae of the Gamma Delta Chapter at Rutgers University - Camden gathered for a Saint Patrick’s Day potluck on March 18, 2023. The event was hosted by Linda Rusciani Heath at her home in New Jersey. In attendance at this event were eight Gamma Delta alumnae. While this event standing alone might not seem very significant, it is just one example of what these women do to communicate and support each other. Many members of this group were founders of the chapter. Events often included local chapter alumnae who graduated before the colony became a chapter. Over the years, this group of women has come together for many informal potlucks and dinners to keep their sisterhood and friendship alive. One sister pointed out that this group was an important support system to her, especially during the first months of the pandemic as the group’s communication via Facebook and an online chat group helped her to feel less isolated. Outside the group, these women have supported and attended many alumni events in connection with the Rutgers - Camden alumni office over many years and are already planning a 50th anniversary “reunion within a reunion” when the Rutgers - Camden classes of 1973 and 1974 hold their joint 50th anniversary celebrations in 2024.

In addition to using their social media channels for chapter marketing, they do a great job of leveraging it to spread awareness about aspects that are important to their members including DEI, mental health, etc. For Women’s History Month, they featured a dedicated campaign highlighting their sisters' successes. They also have a second Instagram page separate from their chapter page which focuses on mental health awareness. This page was established in March 2020, and the chapter continues to maintain the Instagram page to support their sisters and promote positivity. They also have a blog focused on DEI initiatives and sharing perspectives from their members.
