OSU’s Alpha Pi Omega chapter recognized for volunteer work for third straight year
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
The Gamma Chapter of Alpha Pi Omega Sorority at Oklahoma State University has received the national Busy Bees of the Year award for the third year in a row.
“We are very honored to receive the award three years in a row,” said Marly Fixico-Hardison, OSU’s Multicultural Greek Council president. “To receive the 2019 Busy Bees Award at our founding place brings a special amount of joy. We are thankful that our sisterhood encourages us to give back to our communities and help others."
The award is given to the chapter with the strongest commitment to community service. The Gamma Chapter recorded nearly 400 hours during the 2018-2019 academic year by volunteering at the Iowa Tribe’s veterans dance and at the Remember the 10 Run, which honors the 10 members of the OSU family who died in a plane crash in 2001.
Alpha Pi Omega Sorority was founded in 1994 and is the country’s largest and oldest Native American Greek-letter organization, representing more than 120 tribes nationwide.
