I was initiated as an alumna by the Omicron Chapter at USC … one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life.
The fun, energy, compassion, love and camaraderie in Theta is so very special and is something that I would wish everyone could enjoy in some fashion at some time in their lives.
What surprised me most—in fact thrilled me—about becoming a Theta was the intense passion that members have for their sisterhood and for all of the good works that they do, particularly CASA. When you’re in the presence of Thetas, you are aware that as diverse as the group may be, there is a sameness of mind and purpose to do good things in this world. I felt at home from the minute I stepped into that circle of vibrant women.
My husband, Dr. Phil McGraw, and I are involved with a number of charitable organizations. There are no children more disadvantaged than those who get caught up in the foster care system. Once I had the opportunity to learn about CASA and their mission to help needy children, it was immediately apparent that Theta is a vital part of the CASA army. I was so moved by members’ passionate pursuit of the goal to help these foster children. When I was then given the honor of becoming part of Theta, I just knew that it was meant to be.
