Cal Poly Pomona's Greek community had a good showing at the 59th Annual Western Regional Greek Leadership Conference held March 1 – 4, in Burlingame, Calif.
Twenty representatives of all four sub councils including the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council and the Diversified Greek Council attended the conference.
They took home two major awards and participated in a number of activities.
Here's the breakdown:
Best Newsletter Award – The Greek Times won for excellence in addressing relevant issues and promoting events through creative and thoughtful Greek community newsletters. This newsletter was developed by Kim Scatton, who is a James Bell Intern and member of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority.
Outstanding Greek Advisor of the Year Award – The award was presented to Jame'l Hodges, coordinator of Greek Life, in recognition of high ideals and values while serving as a positive change agent on campus and within the Western Region.
Order of Omega Case Study Competition – Cal Poly Pomona placed third in this staff/student joint competition presented by Hodges and Dimitrius Lynch, Greek Council president and member of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity.
Conference Workshop Presentation – Hodges presented “The Greek Mix: Unity, Not Just Uniformity.” This workshop examined both similarities and differences between all fraternities and sororities. It culled practical suggestions on how to encourage a diverse student activity experience, increase organizational efficiency and foster unity among the student body.
