Leaders in Kappa Phi Chapter Selected for the High Honor of Homecoming Court

Conner Clarken, Kappa Phi UNC-Charlotte (NC) was recently voted by the UNC-Charlotte student body to represent the university as Homecoming Queen. She was crowned during UNCCs homecoming football game halftime show. Her sisters were cheering her on along with fellow sister Katelynn Bruno, who was also on homecoming court. Conner Clarken has been a dedicated sister throughout her time as a collegiate member as she has served as Sunshine Chair, a representative on the Standards Board, Resident Advisor for the chapter house, and as a Sorority Recruitment Counselor. Conner has also been heavily involved in other on-campus endeavors as she has been a Senior and Junior counselor for the Student Advising for Freshman Excellence (SAFE) program, member of Order of Omega Honor Society, member of the Psi Chi Honor Society, studied abroad in Spain, member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, worked as a research assistant, and received the honor of Chancellor’s list every semester of her collegiate career.
Alongside Conner on the homecoming court was fellow collegiate sister Katelynn Bruno who proudly served Kappa Phi as President and Vice President of Philanthropy. Her campus involvement also includes being a member of Order of Omega Honor Society, co-founding the Gift of Life student organization, serving as Executive Director for UNCCs Dance Marathon, and received the honors of Chancellors and Deans list. These women made a huge positive impact on the chapter and will be greatly missed as they graduate later this year.

March 25, 2016

The Kappa Phi Chapter (University of North Carolina/Charlotte) believes that all too often those who serve their country are forgotten. "Military men and women give their service year round to keep us safe," said Mackenzie Hardin, LAMP Editor. "Many times they are unable to be home for the holidays or important family moments."

Avery Bonifati, Kappa Phi’s Vice President of Programs, paired with the Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to bring Valentines for Veterans to the campus, a community service project that took place on February 3, 2016. Avery made nearly 300 cards for students and faculty to fill out. Within an hour and a half, all the cards were complete. The amount of support from students and faculty was overwhelming. Many people stood in line to write a Valentine’s Day card to a veteran.

Avery said, “I was trying to think [of something] unique and different that our chapter and the rest of campus has not seen yet. I thought since Valentine's Day was right about the corner that this would be a great opportunity to do something extra nice for our veterans and show that they are appreciated every day of the year! Doing this event with the ROTC was exciting, and we are the first fraternal organization to partner with the ROTC on such a project." The valentines were delivered to a local veteran’s shelter in Charlotte, North Carolina. Avery continues to work to expand Greek programs around campus and to educate non-Greeks about the value of fraternal organizations.

As the Vice President of Programs, Avery has a passion for helping her chapter grow. Goal-oriented, she “wants to bring many great events about current issues that relate to every sister in our chapter, to educate them on so many different issues and conflicts that can affect us in the post-grad life.”
