Winter 2015 Issue: Showcasing Those Who Personify Theta Values

Category: Fraternity

One of the most pleasing aspects of serving as editor of the Theta magazine is the chance to meet so many accomplished members—even if it is only virtually—and sharing their stories with you. The Winter 2015 issue offers an abundance of amazing Thetas, including Carrie Hammer, who has won praise for her fashion shows featuring role models rather than fashion models, and Lindsey Pitts Croop, a ballerina with the prestigious Dance Theatre of Harlem.

I am pleased that this issue also includes a number of notable “friends of Theta,” including Michael Piraino, CEO of National CASA, and ten outstanding faculty members as nominated by our college chapters across the continent. This is the third year that the Fraternity has honored exceptional faculty on campuses with Theta chapters. The honorees for the 2013-14 academic year teach in fields ranging from STEM to literature to business. In addition, the institutions in which they teach range from public to private, from research-based to liberal arts-based. They were chosen from more than 110 nominations by Theta chapters who believe their professors personify Theta’s aspirations inside and outside of the classroom.

We hope you’ll be inspired by the women (and men!) in the latest issue of the Theta magazine.
