Gamma Tau Gives Back
The Gamma Tau Chapter at Bowling Green State University volunteered at the local animal shelter, The Wood County Humane Society back in September. The Wood County Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization that strives to improve the lives of animals and people through advocacy, education, and support.
The event was called Doggy Day Out and occurred on September 15, 2018. During the event, sisters paired up and were given a dog. We had the opportunity to take the dog on hikes around local nature trails. Some of our sisters even took their dogs to Starbucks and got them Puppuccinos. Our sisters were able to give back to the local community and make a difference.
Jenny Cook, a recent alumni of the Gamma Tau Chapter, has been honored and selected to participate in FrancisCorps after Graduation. FrancisCorps is a faith based organization where Jenny will be a youth mentor for a local foundation and their after school programs for low-income families. The program promotes educational and social growth. Jenny will be organizing and leading the program for pre-kindergarten through middle school aged children. She will specifically focus on enhancing their communication, emotional, cognitive and physical skills. Jenny stated that "every chapter we recite how we wish to 'give graciously of what is mine', I think this is the next step for me to continue to do that and to continue to stick to my Delta Zeta values, even post graduation." Jenny loves that the values of her new service align well with those Delta Zeta taught her and she knows that even though it is her job to help those children grow, they will also be helping her personal growth.
The Gamma Tau Chapter is proud of Jacqueline Gilbride, who was nominated for Panhellenic President of the Year for her service and leadership to Gamma Tau. Jacqueline became President of the Gamma Tau Chapter as a sophomore.
The chapter is also very proud of Lisa Hamberg (center), who was nominated for Greek Woman of the Year for her dedication to Delta Zeta and her overall passion for campus involvement.
The Gamma Tau Chapter was awarded Chapter of Excellence for the fourth consecutive year, receiving the highest score in three out of the four pillars including academic excellence, positive relationships and leadership. Gamma Tau currently holds the highest GPA among the Panhellenic community and the all-undergraduate GPA.
Member of the chapter participated in the One Grey Dress Challenge. For this project, women wear the same grey dress for one month. "The challenge represents our appreciation to have choice," said Taylor Hanes, LAMP Editor and Historian. "Its purpose is to raise money and awareness for victims of sex trafficking. Two sisters of Gamma Tau, Jenny Cook and Ellen Rossi, were two of the top fundraisers for the One Grey Dress Project!"
