AOII Perspective
ToDragma [Summer2004]
Have you ever read a quote which is so inspiring that you feel a need to go back and read it again?
I recently came across a quote by Rosa Parks that reminded me of so many successful AOIIs that Iknow. She said, "Each person must live life as a model forothers." As I read about the AOIIs in the following pages, I am reminded of some of my other favorite quotes.
Margaret Mead could have been talking about our Founders when she said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the is the only thing that ever has."
"You just don't luck into things as much as you'd like to think you do," said Barbara Bush. "You build step by step, whether it's friendships or opportunities."
To our leaders of tomorrow, our graduating seniors, this Eleanor Roosevelt quote remains appropriate, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
Mary Pickford reminds us of one of the qualities of a great leader or a great organization in her quote, "You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down."
"Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? W e must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. W e must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained." Marie Curie's wise words remain as relevant today as they were in the early 20th century.
This issue features many inspiring AOII leaders. They are continuing on the path that our Founders set more than 100 years ago, and contributing to Alpha Omicron Pi's success. Alpha Omicron Pi's sisterhood is thriving because of all of our dedicated members who remain true to our ideals and committed to constant improvement. As Past International President, Mary Louise Roller, said, "Progress is always the result of doing a thing not as good - but better." Thank you to all of our members who are "doing a thing better" for Alpha Omicron Pi.

11 Hi
New Executive Board Member ofAlumnae Announced
The Executive Board
is pleased to announce the appointment of Kathy Jensen as the Executive Board Director of Alumnae. She will replace Kimberly Carson McGowan who recently resigned. Kathy'sterm will begin immediately and will expire on July
1, 2005.
Kathy was initiated into Theta Omega Chapter (Northern Arizona U) where she had the honor of serving as Chapter President. She currently works as a consultant and trainer specializing in management development. Kathy has served as a volunteer for Alpha Omicron Pi for several years in many capacities. Her most recent position with the Fraternity was serving

Middle Tennessee Now Home to
Three Greek Headquarters.
On January 15,2004 AOII Headquarters Staffhosted a reception for the staffs of two NIC member groups, Sigma Pi Fraternity and Chi Psi Fraternity. The
event was held to welcome both organizations move to the Middle Tennessee area. Sigma Pi moved
from Vincennes, Indiana to Brentwood, Tennessee on December 31,2003. Sigma Pi Fraternity was founded at Vincennes University in 1897. Chi Psi Fraternity operations also recently located to nearby Hendersonville, Tennessee. Chi Psi was founded in 1841 at Union College in Schenectady, New York.
More Than A Building
AOII International Headquarters is a magnificent facility, designed and maintained for efficient support of
our members and chapters. But "headquarters"is more than a building, it is also a working business environment
for more than two dozen professional emplogees. Over the next several issues, the Executive Board would like to highlight some of the outstanding employees who work
at AOII International Headquarters.
Spotlight: Rebecca Brown Davis
For more than 10 years, she has helped define the fraternity's image through the design of ToDragma and the website to the fraternity's promotional materials and letterhead. Rebecca Brown Davis, Delta Delta (Auburn U) is AOH's award winning Graphic Designer/Web Architect. She has lent her enormous design talents to virtually every phase of fraternity operations including extension presentation materials; Emporium merchan- dise design, photography and promotion; conference materials, and the AOII Biennial Report.
Her most visible contributions are, of course, ToDragma and the AOII website. ToDragma has undergone two extensive redesigns during her tenure, and has regularly been honored with design awards from the Collegiate Fraternity Editors Association (CFEA). She has also designed and maintained an award winning website since its inception and worked tirelessly on the exciting new site design scheduled to roll out in late July of this year. Both communication vehicles benefit from her talent and vision.
She is well respected among her interfraternal peers and has regularly offered her design talents, on behalf of AOII, to the National Panhellenic Conference and CFEA, notably designing NPC's Centennial promotional brochure, numerous logos and many other contributions.
AOII Executive Director Melanie Doyle states, "AOII is extremely fortunate
to have Rebecca and
her extraordinary talent on our staff." Through Rebecca. AOII shines to our members and our publics because she is passionate about her work and about AOII. She is a valuable member of AOH's professional Headquarters Staff.

to Success
New resources will aid collegiate and alumnae chapters in their pursuit of excellence.
Resources are one of the best gifts we can offer our collegiate and alumnae chapters and the volunteers who work to support them. Resources include training sessions for officers and volunteers and manuals for chapter operations; educational programming for the chapter; and qualified staff available at all times to all chapters. Regardless of size, geographic location, or age of a chapter, providing these resources is critical to every chapter's success. In recognizing this obligation to the Fraternity, last year we created the Education Department at Headquarters and this year we are adding more resources to this department. W e expect that all chapters will be encouraged in their pursuit of excellence.
The Aclministrative Director of Education is responsible for developing an Educational Plan for AOII Fraternity including both curriculum development and oversight of its implementation. She works with the Networks, Committees, and Executive Board to ensure our educational goalsarebeingmet.Sheistheprimaryliaisonforalleducational sessions at Leadership Institute and Convention and all educational trainings held at Headquarters, including Leadership Academy. The AdministrativeDirectorofEducation(ADE) positionoverseesthe Collegiate Services Department and ihe Alumnae Services Department and guarantees that our chapters receive the best educational programming possible.
Hie Fraternity Resources Administrator, a new position starting in June 2004, assists in the development and update of alumnae and collegiate resources including manuals and workshops. She is the contact for
our chapters about all Fraternity resources. In addition, this position supports the preparation of Leadership Academy, Leadership Institute, and all other training opportunities for collegiate and alumnae women. In addition, the FRA will help maintain eCommunities on the newly revised AOII web site, which will increase resource sharing among sisters with similar positions and a locale to serve as a single compre- hensive source of information for each officer and volunteer. Through this process, she will ensure that our members have all the necessary knowledge to achieve the Standards of Excellence. The Fraternity Resources Administrator is the chapter's "help desk" when it comes to AOII support materials.
The Alumnae Services Administrator serves the alumnae chapters
by working with the Alumnae Presidents and Alumnae Network volunteers. The ASA provides assistance to chapters in all facets of their operations and supports them by gathering information needed to contact local alumnae. She is responsible for the development of alum- nae programming, including worthwhile programs such as Senior Kits and From Initiation to Eternity. In addition, this position promotes and coordinates the AOII Always program available to all alumnae of AOII.
The Collegiate Services Administrator works directly with the Collegiate and Colony Development Network to support all areas of collegiate chapter operations. The CSA provides recommendations and solutions for issues impacting our chapters. She gathers, compiles, and analyzes trends that the Fraternity must address. In addition to answer- ing numerous questions daily from collegians and Network volunteers, she reviews collegiate reports and prepares overall collegiate depart- ment reports on a regular basis. The Collegiate Services Administrator position takes a hands-on approach to assisting every chapter.
ToDragma [Summer2004]

The Membership Development Adrninistrators work directly with the Chapter Development Program, which assists selected chapters to attain high standards of excellence. These women travel to the chapters, help develop action plans, and monitor the progress of the chapters. The Membership Development Administrator (MDA) positions offer that extra guidance in the Collegiate Services Department.
The Membership Recruitment Consultants, two new positions, provide recruitment support for all chapters and establish weekly communication with the VPMR and Recruitment Adviser for specified chapters. Through continuous contact with these chapters, the Membership Recruitment Consultants help prepare action plans that enable the chapters to be competitive on campus and execute a smooth and successful recruitment. These women travel to the chapters and meet with the chapter and advisers,
the Greek Adviser, and the Panhellenic. They maintain regular contact with the chapters to follow the year round recruitment calendar. The Membership Recruitment Consultants (MRC) positions are dedicated to promoting AOII's growth into the future.
The Technology/Finance Adrninistrator, another new position, supports the Fraternity's advances in technology through her work with Alpha Link, iMIS, and the AOII web site. However, her direct link with the chapters is through collegiate finances. In the financial area, she works with the Networks to better understand collegiate accounts. In addition, the TFA provides training and will facilitate the planned implementa- tion of new financial management software for collegiate chapters. This new software will offer uniformity for the management and reporting of collegiate finances and we project implementation in the coming year. This Technology/Finance Administrator will visit chapters as necessary to help with intensive budget development and field questions from the Network on financial matters. The Technology/Finance Administrator not only works to improve AOII's cutting edge use of technology but also works to help our collegiate chapters maintain solid financial accounts.
It is the hope of the Executive Board that all of our members utilize the great support network that has been established in the Education Department, as well as all of the tremendous Staffat Headquarters. Everyalumnaeandcollegiateofficer,member,adviser,Networkvolun- teer, and Standing Committee member should feel free to call upon the resource people we have assembled. Their purpose is to serve every chapter and to reach the highest Standards of Excellence for Alpha Omicron Pi!

An AOII Experience
in Baghdad
Shortly after the September 0, 2001 terrorist attacks, Epsilon Chi (Elon U) chapter members created an American Flag using their handprints and footprints stamped on a full-size bed sheet. The flag proudly hung outside their chapter house throughout that academic year.
That flag now hangs in Baghdad,
behind the bunk of Army 1st Lieutenant Christina Adams, who had been an Epsilon Chi collegian at that time. Following her graduation in May, 2002, the chapter pre- sented Christina with the flag to carry with her during her upcoming military service.
A native of Poolesville, Maryland, Christina majored in Social Science Education at Elon College. The summer before her senior year, Christina attended and graduated from airborne school in Fort Benning, Georgia. This was a highly intensive training course and required that she complete 5 jumps from a plane in order to graduate. In November 2002. after graduation from Elon, she branched Transportation and was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. One year later, in November 2003, Christina's company received orders to deploy in support of OIF II (Operation Iraqi Freedom II).
Christina is officially a member of the
1st Cavalry Division, in A FSC (Forward Support Company) 215th Forward Support Battalion. Her company supports 1-9, an infantry battalion. Christina is the company XO/SPO (Executive Officer)/(Support Ops). She is next in command ifher commander
is not available to manage the headquarters section. As the SPO, she works closely with the maneuver Battalion to ensure that they have all the support they need This includes everything from tracking the food cooks, and mechanics, to transportation, ammunition and fuel-inand outofthe company. Additionally, she coordinates with the 215th to make sure they have enough supplies and assets to support them. Christina added, "Basically, I provide logistic support to the
infantry guys and am the direct link between the Support Ops at 215th and 1-9. Anything they need for support - they go through me and I coordinate it."
Christina reports that she is currently located in Baghdad just outside of the "green zone"
or safe zone. She has been on a few convoys so far and confesses, "it blows me away what a mess thisplace isand howbad Ifeelforthese people." She is expected to be stationed there between 13 to 21 months.
The AOII flag lifts her spirits and morale everyday, and the other soldiers think it's "pretty cool." She added, "this flag is a warm reminder of AOII." In a message to her chapter's current members, Christina wrote, "I am doing fine and I appreciate all the support. Cherish this time together in college because
it goes by quickly and those friendships are the one thai will last"
Christina's Epsilon Chi sisters call her a "bom leader," and "a model sister." They concluded, "Christina is a sister who truly lives out our chapter's motto everyday."

An International Experience in Oregon
West International House
is one of several "theme" residence halls at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. Candy Pierson-Charlton, Ed.M., Alpha Rho (Oregon State U), her husband, David, and their 16-year-old daughter Caroline are currently serving as a Faculty-in-Residence family.
The role of the Faculty-in-Residence Program is to work with student residents to create a compelling Uving/learning experience within the West International House. Students inter- ested in living with someone from a different culture and learning what it means to be a global citizen are encouraged to apply to live in West.
This role means that the Pierson-Charlton fam- ily lives in an apartment in the West residence hall, regulariy interacts with students, creates programs, and tries to foster an atmosphere of caring and support for students and staff
Candy is a third generation Oregon Stater who graduated in 1973 with a degree in liberal studies with an emphasis in journalism. In 2002, she earned a master's degree in educa- tion through the College Student Services Administration (CSSA) program as prepara- tion for the student affairs profession.
financehergraduatestudiesatOSU Candy acknowledges "I am very grateful for the won- derful support this scholarship provided and appreciate the special AOII sisters I've met over the years."
She currently works for the English Language Institute (ELI) at Oregon State University. The ELI offers an intensive English program for international students who want to improve their English ability.
So why is a 53-year-old recent CSSA gradu- ate living in a university residence hall? The opportunity resulted from her work with University Housing and Dining Services and she jumped at the chance to be involved. David and Candy were married in Norway, lived in London, and have enjoyed many friends from around the world. They thought this would be an excellent opportunity for her to gain valuable student affairs experi- ence and learn more about students and different cultures. They entered the program last September and have agreed to continue throughout the summer and through the 2004-05 school year.
Their two-bedroom apartment is furnished with items collected from their travels or are gifts from students - a brass table from Morocco, wooden carved animals from
Kenya, electric candle lights from Norway, a brass plate from Kuwait, miniature Chinese theater masks, a carving from Indonesia, and on and on. They've tried to create a cozy, relaxed atmosphere where people can sit,
talk and enjoy each other's company. They love visitors and ask only that they remove their shoes before stepping inside their door
- something international friends do automati- cally and something American friends are learning to do!
The family opens their apartment for students every W ednesday evening. They attend weekly hall council meetings, staff meetings, meetings with the international student gov- erning organization, and weekly meetings with the resident director. Each term has been a whirlwind of activities. W eekly programs have included conversations about dating customs around the worid with students from Italy,
Sri Lanka, Burkina Faso, China, and Japan. Students from Thailand, Japan, and Colombia shared games, origami, and Japanese cal- ligraphy, and students from Jamaica, India, Argentina, and Japan presented a program
on their cultural dress and special traditions. Candy says, "There is much to do, but we rel- ish the chance to help bring international and American students and faculty together for opportunities to share cultures and special interests." Her only challenge seems to be how to squeeze 48 hours out of each day.
She pledged Alpha Omicron Pi in the fall
of 1969 and loved being a part of Alpha Rho Chapter. After graduation, she worked as a traveling consultant for AOII for 18 months (1974-75), and had an incredible time meet- ing wonderful sisters throughout the United States and Canada. She later served as
the Lincoln, Nebraska Alumnae Chapter President and was a member of Zeta's AAC at the University of Nebraska. In the summer of 2000, she was awarded the Helen Haller Diamond Jubilee Scholarship, which helped

2004 "Chapter President
Leadership Academy emy
Alpha Omicron Pi International Headquarters and the Franklin- Cool Springs Marriott Hotel were the sites for the 2004 Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy held February 27-29. Eighty-nine chapter presidents attended the weekend event organized by the AOII Education and Training Committee and Headquarters Staffand partially funded by a grant from the AOII Foundation.
Leadership training was the focus of the annual academy held twice a year for Chapter Presidents and one other chapter officer. The weekend proved to be much more. It was filled with fun, friendship, and a life skills learning opportunity. One chap- ter president summarized her experiences this way. "Not only did I learn things that I need to implement into my chapter, but things I need to start implement- ing into my live."
In addition to the entenaining, informative and value-packed sessions, LA participants were given the opportunity to idea- share with others in small group sessions. Participants were treat- ed to a "Ask the IP" session with AOII's International President, Sally Wagaman, a tour of Alpha Omicron Pi's International Headquarters and time to shop the Emporium. AOII Movie Night gave members "down-time"
to visit and meet new sisters and make new lifelong friends.
On Friday, Melissa Parsons Healy led LA participants in learning the art of motivation using the FISH! philosophy. FISH! Is a parable - an invented story and best-selling book by authors Dr. Stephen C. Lundin, Henry Paul and John Christensen - about finding the deep source of energy, creativity and passion that exists inside each of us by learning to love what we do, even i f at the moment we may not be doing exactly what we love. Melissa reviewed these life skills with the CPs and correlated them to chap- ter-specific needs.
Saturday morning began with the "Win As Much As You Can" game hosted by Healy and Lisa Moore. Not only was the game great fun, but stirred enthusiasm and challenged the CPs in how to attain a healthy balance of com- petition and collaboration within the chapter structure.
"The Big Picture: AOII" was
the next focus. Rissa Welcher,
W eekend Facilitator said, "Just because you are the chapter president, does not mean you are expected to know all the answers off the top of your head." W elcher detailed the many resources available to chapter presidents. Participants reviewed common
situations that often occur on college campuses, then selected, researched and applied their new skills to locate resources and find the much-needed information.
Lisa Moore took the group through an in-depth review
of AOII's Book of Policies dur- ing a session tided "The AOII Crisis...A.H.D." Special attention focused on risk management issues such as alcohol, hazing and drugs (A.H.D.)
Past International President and RT&J Chairman Ginger Banks facilitated two sessions. The
first session was "Living Life
with Values". Ginger combined humorous stories, personal touch- es and her love of Ritual to help chapter leaders see Ritual as not just a ceremony, but the Fraternity philosophy. Her "Top Ten Things Chapter Presidents Should Know
About Our Initiation Ritual" brought a realism to the AOII Ritual that many of these young women had never known.
Following breakfast on Sunday and a brief presentation by
Grace Day, Foundation Assistant Director., Ginger Banks con- cluded the Leadership Academy Session with "How to Put a Giraffe in a Refrigerator". Ginger used entertaining scenarios to encourage participants to look for the obvious, stay focused and keep it simple while facing new challenges head on.
One participant summed up the weekend this way, "I have learned that no chapter is perfect. The challenges that my chapter faces are also challenges for others. I did learn many new things I can do to help my chapter succeed."
Leadership Academy is partially supported by a grant from the AOII Foundation ToDragma [ Summer 2004 ]

The Roller Award
New biennial award will honor AOIFs past and present.
During her lifetime of AOII service, Mary Louise Filer Roller, Alpha Pi (Florida State U) was
also committed to Panhellenic service. Initiated in 1933, she served as her collegiate chapter's Panhellenic Delegate and Panhellenic President at Florida State U. She organized the Miami Alumnae Chapter and served as alumnae president while also beginning her involvement on
an international level. Mary Louise was AOII's 1955-1957 International President. She served
for twenty-two years as AOII's delegate to the National Panhellenic Conference (1957-1985) and Chairman of the Conference from 1967-1969. She is one of only two AOIIs to have served in this prestigious position. Often lovingly referred to as AOII's royalty, Mary Louise is remembered for her grace, charm, common sense and high ideals.
In tribute to this outstanding lady, The new Roller Award will honor a collegian who has pro- vided outstanding service and leadership to her local panhellenic, campus and/or community. It will be presented once each biennium during a convention year, beginning in June 2005.
AOII has numerous collegians who excel as leaders in their panhellenic, on their campus or in their community. Though Mary Louise passed away in 2002, she would have been pleased that AOII has chosen to recognize these individuals for their efforts.
ToDragma [Summer2004]
"Hflr" -
"Mary Louise Roller was one
of the most classy, yet down-to- earth, leaders of the Fraternity that AOII has ever been fortunate to have. Because of the way
she carried herself and her
quiet demeanor, Mary Louise projected a feeling of regality to many members. Even with that being the case, Mary Louise was a 'real' person who had a great warmth and sense of humor."
- Joan MacCallum International President, 1979-1981
"I heard members who served with her in various capacities
say that Mary Louise would sit quiedy during discussions, taking it all in. After considering all
the points made, Mary Louise would offer cogent, insightful, and knowledgeable words of wisdom that were always right
on target. Her comments always conveyed her astute assessment of the human condition, her high standards, and her unrelenting belief in Alpha Omicron Pi and Panhellenic principles. When Mary Louise spoke, everyone listened.
"This new award would delight and flatter Mary Louise. At the sam e time, I can imagine her wanting to shift the focus from the honor that the award bestows on her to the honor it bestows on the recipient of the award"
- Ginger Banks International President, 1981-1985

By Wilma Smith Leland, Tau (U of Minnesota) To Dragma Editor 1927-1946
The May 1930 issue of To Dragma celebrated the magazine's Silver Anniversary. The editor at the time, Wilma Smith Leland. asked all previous editors to reminise. in writing, about their years as editor. Below is Wilma's own contribution to that issue. She was three years into what would be a lg-year-term as editor-the longest tenure ofang of To Dragma's editors. Wilma's dedication to the magazine and to the fraternity can not be measured, as she was one of only two editors to serve as an AOII International President
Dear Readers:
"I wouldn't take up space with my letter, for my experiences are not of the past; they are weekly trips to the printers, daily telephone calls, dozens of letters always before me to be answered - the experiences of one in the act of doing instead of in the act of having done. But 1 suspect that when another twenty-five years have swept past us, and the editor of To Dragma decides to celebrate our golden jubilee, she will be glad to rum to volumne twenty-five and find there the complete record of the first twenty-five years of its existence instead of the first twenty-two. Hence I write for those tocome;forthedaywhenmyeditorshipwillbehistoryinsteadofthelivingpresent.
"Betty Bond went to Europe in March, 1925, and I edited the May issue for her and went to Seattle convention in her place. She had declined the nomination for re-election, and so I was elected editor at that time.
"I wonder if there will ever be all the money an editor wants? I doubt it, for our wants and desires ever increase faster than our incomes, don't they? That's progress, they say. Of course, we've had more money than ever before, but I long for the day when the editor won't have the irksome job of haggling with printers over $2.00 items, thinking all the while that $2.00 would pay for one more cut! I long for the day when the editor won't have to clip together ten pages of proof and mark them 'run next time' because she had ten pages over the 128 allotted bythe budget. Oh, Ilongforlots of things, and 1 burn with envy as 1 watch other [NPC] editors spend their dollars without thought.
"But only those editors and business managers who have preceded me and those who are yet to come will know what real joy there is in the editing of this magazine of ours[_] Yes, it's hard work - long hours during nap time and night time when new books and magazine look so inviting; or min- utes snatched during the 'awake' hours, interrupted by a trip to see where [my] young four-year-old is, and ifshe isn't in sight to discover just where she has gone. There are disappointments, someone fails to send the article she has promised; another refuses to send a much-needed picture; a cut doesn't turn out as expected or the pressman won't use the right amount of ink.
"But it's worth it. In ten years I may agree with Mary Ellen Chase* - just now I'm having the experience!"
* Wilma was referriny to 1915-1919 editor Mary Ellen Chase's letter in the same issue which read. "I do not know that the fruits of those four years with To Dragma were particularlg nourishing, especially joyful, or very long in their effects. And yet. believing with Pater and the Epicureans that 'experience itself is the end.' 1 look back upon my editorship with pleasure and gratitude. Surely 1 do not wish to repeat the experience, but just as surely I would not have been without it!"

Foundation Update
Alumnae/Graduate Diamond Jubilee Foundation Scholarship
"My DJF scholarship came at a time when I truly needed it the most. Because of assistantship requirements, I took a year leave of absence from my teaching job, my family experienced the immediate loss ofmy income, and my studies necessitated that I move to Nashville, TN to live in a dorm room for a year. Thanks to the AON Foundation's Diamond Jubilee Scholarship, I was able to afford my tuition, and my husband and I were able to regain our financial footing. Every single day I am so thankful that the Diamond Jubilee Scholarship and the Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation were there for me when I needed them most."
Meredith Anne S. Higgs, Nu Omicron, 2002-03 DJF Recipient Your gifts to the DJF Scholarship Fund are making a difference. Please continue to support the
Scholarship program with your tax-deductible Foundation gifts.
$20,000 Jaime Frantz Memorial Scholarship Awarded
Jaime Frantz, Chi Delta '98, was killed in a hit and run accident in Boulder, CO, shortly before her graduation. Jaime's family held a golf tournament in June 2003, to raise funds for a scholarship to benefit Chi Delta Chapter, and as a way to honor Jaime's memory and love for AOll. The first recipient of this wonderful tribute to a very special sister is Katie Van Lunsen, Chi Delta '02, a Communications major from Snoqualmie, WA.
Jaime's brother Chris, a student at UC, joined Chi Delta members and local alumnae, to represent the family at a special ceremony and alumnae meeting on April 25. Katie was presented with the scholarship check for $20,000.' Congratulations to Katie, and thanks to the Frantz family for this generous tribute and for their continued support and love for AOII and Jaime's sisters at Chi Delta.
The Second Annual Jaime Frantz Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 7. Proceeds will fund the 2005-06 Scholarship.
Small Investments Made Larger: Making a Gift of Life Insurance
Thanks to the generous philanthropy of AOII chapters and donors, in 2003-04 the AOII Foundation awarded $35,000 per year for 3 years to Dr. Nathalie LeClerc at the University of Southern California. Her focus is osteoporosis, a major complication in arthritis patients treated with glucocorticoids (GC). Dr. LeClerc's work will lead to bone-sparing treatment choices, thus improving the outcomes of people with rheumatoid arthritis.
Dr. LeClerc was born in 1969 in Strasbourg, France, graduating in 1999 with a Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Neurosciences. She sent this update
on her research and findings, along with her deep appreciation for the support
of AOII in making her work possible.
"I have recently completed
two projects, using two different experimental approaches, which lead to a remarkably similar conclusion on GC action in osteoblasts... The first study will appear later this year in the Journal of Molecular Endocrinology and the second study will soon be submitted for peer-review ."
either fully or partly paid up, you can change the ownership to the AOII Foundation and receive a tax deduction for the cash value. Any remaining premium payments become tax deductible
gifts to the Foundation. Donors of life insurance are recognized as members of the Foundation's Second Century Society. Contact the Foundation
You need not be wealthy to consider making this special kind ofgift to support the AOII Foundation. Small investments through a modest annual premium can result in a larger gift in the future, with a charitable contribution of life insurance. It's practical, affordable, and meaningful.
Typically,adonorappliesfora insurance policy on her own life, and names the charity as irrevocable owner and beneficiary. Since the AOII
Foundation is the owner, premium payments are tax-deductible. When the premium is due, you send a charitable gift in that amount, which is used by the Foundation to pay the premium. You also receive credit toward your lifetime giving record. Additionally, your company may match your gift, either helping

"To me, fair friend,
you can never be old, for as you were when
first your eye I eyed, such
seems your beauty
. -William Shakespeare
One of the most heartwarming and touching experiences of attending an AOII Founders' Day celebration is when an alumna member is honored with her 50 year pin. W e have a beautiful Ritual written to com- memorate this milestone and it is truly a privilege of member- ship to share this special occa- sion with our sisters. Many of our chapters also take the time to honor those sisters that have reached the 60 year and 75 year milestones of their mem- bership. Often times when these wonderful women are honored, they reward the group in attendance by sharing fas- cinating stories of what it was like to be an AOII in the earlier days. AOII currently has over 9,100 alumnae who have been members for 50 years or more. These women are an integral part of AOH's history and have intriguing and captivating memories to share. Many of the following memories are of a dif- ferent era, before Panhellenic changed "rush" to "recruit- ment" and "pledge" to "new member." The terminology in these stories have not been changed for the sake of today's political correctness.
Mary Ruth Whiteley McKnight
Beta Phi '35 (Indiana U) fondly remembers RushWeek on her campus. It was a Panhellenic rule on campus that those
interested in joining a sorority needed to have a recommenda- tion from an active collegiate
or alumnae member. Girls interested in rushing were assigned temporary rooms by the University. They attended all ofthe rush parties thefirstday and then attended parties the second and third day by invita- tion only. Final selections were made after the third party and bids were delivered. Some girls would get more than one bid and could choose the sorority they wanted. Pledging started immediately and giris moved right into the sorority house or permanent rooms.
MaryJoNoeMcClaran Alpha Pi '37 (Florida State U) shared her sisterhood in the best pos- sible way! Her own sister, Hazel Noe Smoak (Alpha Pi '36), had pledged AOII the prior year. When Mary Jo was a freshman, the chapter president was a senior and an only child who had always wished for a sister. She and Mary Jo became fast friends and she wound up intro- ducing Mary Jo to her future husband. Mary Jo recalls that Sunday dinner was served on campus after everyone returned from church. It was quite a sight to see the students in their Sunday clothes walking to and from the various churches. She alsoremembersthat no cars were allowed on campus. Mary
Jo believes that sororities are wonderful for freshman off at col- lege - a home away from home
- and friends who will remain lifelong friends!
Mohy Barnett BolesHillFolken
Omega '43 (Miami U ) remem- bers during her junior year when her sister, Jean, pledged AOII. It was an historic year for legacies in the chapter as there were six younger sisters of current active members pledging. The Dayton Alumnae Chapter began the tradition of awarding a pin with an all ruby "A" to the outstand- ing members of that pledge class at formal initiation. Because
it was war time, men students wereinshortsupply.Mollyleft Miami at the end ofher junior year to become a Navy wife. Her husband was first stationed at Newport, Rhode Island where Molly immediately visited with the women ofthe Providence Alumnae Chapter.

than their lifetime. They wanted

also talked to the young women
about writing our Ritual. Eleanor
remembers that her roommate at
the Convention was a collegian

ofa three car caravan. Eleanor
invited them all to her home in
New Jersey and all three carloads
of these newfoundfriendsarrived
at her home and stayed for several
days to visit and see the sights
in the area.
Elizabeth Devine Flynn Omicron '45 (U of Tennessee - Knoxville) states that rush today is entirely different than it was in 1945! There were smaller groups of girls attending college then so
it was easier to get to know one another. Elizabeth recalls her crowning memory as her total surprise and delight at being voted the Outstanding Senior in the chapter. She received a white Bible which she carried at her wedding and which still occupies anhonoredplaceinherhome. Elizabeth treasures her mem- ory of attending her first AOII Convention and discovering how many women there were that shared the same goals. She was
Jean (Betsy) Boles Smith Omega 45 (Miami U) was the fourth in her family to become an AOII after her mother, aunt, and older sister. During the spring of her freshman year, she recalls sit- ting on a bench on Slant Walk
on campus with other sisters when someone came by and told them that President Roosevelt had died. Betsy attended the 1947 Convention with two other members of her chapter. They drove to Roanoke, Virginia from Oxford, Ohio stopping overnight at a boarding house. She fondly remembers sitting at the feet of the three living founders to hear their first hand stories of the early days of the fraternity. During
her junior and senior years in college, Betsy worked at AOII's Central Office earning $.50 an hour the first year and $.55 the second year.
MaryJaneBellSharp Omicron 46 (U ofTennessee - Knoxville) also attended her first (ofmany) Convention in 1947 in Roanoke. Mary Jane remembers this as truly a mountaintop experience
"Anold friend is like a full-blown rose, each velvet petal
a pleasant memory.
It's fragrance recalls sweetness that grows with years
of love, understand- ing, and sympathy."
~Margaret Crawford
fortunate enough to meet found- er, Stella George Stem Perry, and tohearfromherdirecdyabout the founding of AOII and her amusing stories of the marvelous
as she was able to get to know three of thefourfounders. As thefounders toldoftheirfound- ing AOII, they asked all of the CPs to sit on the floor right aroundthem.MaryJanehap- pened to sit right at the feet of Stella. She recalls it to have been an awesome experience to be patted on the head by Stella and be called a precious rosebud! That was Stella's truly loving character. They called all of the collegians, "their rosebuds" and spoke of the young ones growing and caringforone another to
be full blown roses as they got older. They told of what each one of them had meant to each other all of their lives in support- ing each others' endeavors and desired achievements and how they always tried to be available whenever any one of them need- ed a loving friend as they went through both difficult times and joyous times. This is what being an AOII is all about - being a friend when you are needed and when you are not. Our founders set the example.
Although we must live in the present and plan for the future, in order to stay on the path that ourfounderslaidoutforuswe must remember and honor the past. Our alumnae members who were initiated in the first half of the twentieth century
are the key to ensuring that our earlier days as an organization are not lost or forgotten. We trust that these extraordinary women will continue to regale us with memories and tales of AOII's past. They were momentous times that we must always appreciate and cherish.
our founders.
