A union that began as “Alpha Phi and Colorado School of Mines: A Partnership that Rocks” lived up to its tagline when new initiates, alumnae, parents and school administration celebration the installation of Alpha Phi’s newest chapter, Iota Zeta on November 5, 2000.
International Executive Board members Val Lawlor (Omicron-Missouri) and Judy Segerer Watson (Beta Omicron-Bowling Green) led the installation ceremonies at the prestigious engineering school in Golden, Colorado.
During the reception, Cairn Lindloff, director of student life at the school, spoke about the contributions Alpha Phi already had made to the university even though the chapter had been on campus for less than a year.
On behalf of the Alpha Phi Foundation, Val presented a scholarship pin to chapter Scholarship Chairman Kristie Dukeminier plus a check for $1,000 to the cardiology program at Exempla Lutheran Medical Center.
Representing the Southwest regional team, Alumnae Membership Coordinator Kamela Schofield Schuster (Zeta Mu-Colorado State) presented a gavel to Chapter President Jamie Werth.
A highlight of the weekend was the presentation of the chapter’s charter by Val to Jamie.
Members from the Denver alumnae chapter, Delta Gamma (Northern Colorado) and Beta Gamma (Colorado) attended the installation celebration and supported the new members.
