In acknowledgement and in gratitude for Gina Kerley’s contribution and commitment to the National Panhellenic Conference.
Elkridge, Maryland (July 24, 2019) — Phi Sigma Sigma, Inc. announces the renaming of the individual Panhellenic excellence award to the Gina Kerley Individual Panhellenic Excellence Award in acknowledgement and in honor of Gina Kerley’s 17 years of service to the National Panhellenic Conference, including service on the executive committee, first alternative delegate, and seven years as Phi Sigma Sigma’s delegate to NPC..
“It is with much gratitude and appreciation that we announce the renaming of our individual Panhellenic award after Gina in honor of her commitment and passion for the National Panhellenic Conference,” said Katie Vlietstra Wonnenberg, Grand Archon of Phi Sigma Sigma. “I first met Gina when she became the advisor to my collegiate chapter, since then she has served as a mentor and cheerleader as I have embarked on my volunteer journey. Gina’s commitment to the sorority experience and the National Panhellenic Conference is something I admire greatly and also, given the significant change that the Conference has undergone, Gina has remained committed and dedicated to advancing the sorority experience. It is with great appreciation that we rename our individual Panhellenic excellence award in her honor.”
Gina Dellaquila Kerley was initiated into the Delta Gamma Chapter at San Francisco State University and began in her volunteer service 33 years ago, including serving 10 years as a member of Phi Sigma Sigma’s board of directors. Furthermore, she has served the National Panhellenic Conference for seventeen years, including two years on the executive committee as alumnae Panhellenic chair and as Phi Sigma Sigma’s delegate since 2013. Due to the governance changes approved by the National Panhellenic Conference during the October 2018 meeting and the elimination of the delegate role, Gina made the decision to transition to Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, effective July 1, 2019, serving as chairman of the development committee.
