Alumna Challenges Members to Make Foundation Gift

Next spring, Alpha Gamma Delta will celebrate 13 years on campus. In honor of this anniversary, alumna DeAnn Malone has asked members of the Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta to combine their efforts and each make a gift to the Truman State University Foundation. With more than 325 chapter members, they could make a combined contribution of more than $13,000 if each member or parent gave just $40 in response to this challenge. The University will tally all contributions by Epsilon Omega alumni between July 1-Dec. 31, 2005, and will recognize the combined chapter effort in a future Truman Review.

Contributions to any existing scholarship, division or sports team will be counted. Members who are interested in contributing to a scholarship may view a full list of existing Foundation Scholarships on the Truman State University Web site under Current Student resources. Malone asked the members to consider donating to either the Kelin Sanders Memorial Scholarship or the Cady Award.

The Kelin Sanders Memorial Scholarship was established in loving memory of Kelin Sanders, a member of Epsilon Omega Chapter, in 2002 by her parents, family and friends. The scholarship is given to M.A.E. students with medium financial need that share Sanders’ passion for teaching.

The Cady Award is designated for a female member of the Greek community demonstrating outstanding involvement in campus leadership and philanthropy. The Cady Award memorializes a great American woman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

The individuals who created both of these scholarships have been contacted and they would welcome additions to their scholarships in response to this challenge.
