This week, Theta is using social media to create awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day (Sept. 10) and National Suicide Prevention Week (Sept. 8-14). We will be linking to Sisters Supporting Sisters resources, as well as resources provided by the organization To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA). TWLOHA's theme this year is "No one else can play your part."

Please help us create awareness and support for those who have personally struggled with suicide and for those whose families have tragically experienced suicide. We would appreciate you sharing Theta's messages on social media. You can also use social media hashtags #NoOneElse14 and #WSPD14 to join the conversation. Visit the TWLOHA website for more information and resources.

Each year for the last 58 years, Glamour Magazine has been recognizing ten outstanding college women: scientists, athletes, activists, businesswomen in their annual Top Ten College Women contest. For this year's contest, Glamour is looking for the best and the brightest applicants from the Class of 2016 and they would love to consider some Kappa Alpha Thetas! The ideal applicant will be a junior in college by the September 15th application deadline, has a stellar academic track record, has exhibited strong leadership skills, excels in her extracurricular activities or athletics, and gives back to her community or campus in some way. The ten winners receive a $3,000 cash prize and a trip to attend the Top Ten College Women event in New York City in the spring of 2015, and one grand prizewinner will receive a $20,000 cash prize as recognition of her accomplishments.

To apply for the 2015 contest, students should visit Glamour's website.

For the third year in a row, Theta is recognizing faculty for contributions to colleges and universities where Theta chapters are present via an official nomination and selection process.

The faculty members were selected from more than 110 nominations by college chapters across the United States and Canada. Chapters were asked to select one nominee and base their selection on the professor's passion for inspiring students and actions that connect to Theta's values of intellectual curiosity, leadership potential, commitment to service, and personal excellence. Candidates were not limited by gender, Greek (or non-Greek) affiliation, disciplinary expertise, or number of Thetas taught.

This year's honorees include:

  • Dr. Ronald L. Pitcock, J. Vaughn & Evelyn H. Wilson Honors Fellow, nominated by Gamma Psi/Texas Christian

  • Marianne Lewis, Professor of Management and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, nominated by Alpha Tau/Cincinnati

"Kappa Alpha Theta develops intellectually ambitious women who will grow to become leaders in their professions and communities," said Fraternity President Laura Ware Doerre. "We encourage our members in their academic pursuits, and we developed the Top Ten Faculty program to recognize the faculty members who support, challenge, and mentor these women on a daily basis."

The Fraternity congratulates these outstanding faculty members for their accomplishments and thanks all of the nominees for their contributions to the scholastic advancement of our members.
