A message from our Awards Committee Chair, Debbie Neupert
One thing that I have learned in my years of involvement in Kappa Epsilon is that we attract and make outstanding leaders! My mission as chair of the Awards Committee is to find and recognize those leaders. We are looking to establish a database of possible award nominees, and need your help!
If you know of any leaders who fit the qualifications for the awards (included below), please forward the names to Cayla Marconi in the KE National Office. Cayla can check on initiation status if you are uncertain. A resume would be a big plus, but not necessary, we can contact them if needed. A list of previous award winners can be found at kappaepsilon.org under the awards tab.
Fraternally in the Bond,
Kappa Epsilon Awards Committee Chair
