A w a r d at the convention in Dallas f o r being out-
standing chapter president for this year. The an-
nouncement came at the convention's Rose Banquet.

Glenna was not present to accept the honor so
it was received by a representative of her chapter.

The Perry Award Committee, in making the an-
nouncement, said. "Glenna Treat has provided lead-
ership and inspiration to Alpha Gamma Chapter
as we w o u l d hope that a l l A l p h a O m i c r o n Pi C h a p -
ters could have. . . A s to her life standards, she
has always been considerate and thoughful, and
does not in anyway give the impression that these
things are done f o r personal gain, but rather out
of desire to help others. She does all things in a
quiet, unassuming manner and you know that any
task undertaken will be completed and well done.
Glenna certainly typifies Alpha Omicron Pi through
her service and inspiration."

Regarding her nomination for the Perry Award,
Glenna says, "Pledging A l p h a O m i c r o n Pi during
the middle of my sophomore year, I was quite sur-
prised to find myself president just t w o months
after initiation!" The challenge facing me was two-
fold: to live up to the ideals of the fraternity in
fulfilling my designated duties and to learn a great
deal more about A O I I , our chapter and the girls
within it. But I was excited for the opportunity to
contribute something to the house which had offered
me so much. . . "
