Samford University sorority women were recognized for outstanding achievements in the area of community service at the 1999 Southeastern Panhellenic conference.
Samford sororities were cited particularly for their Adopt-a-School program which pairs members with inner city schools to offer after-school tutoring and other activities. They were also praised for overall outstanding on-campus women's programming; and academic achievement by individual members.
The Samford Panhellenic programming ideas were included in a resource manual provided to each attendee at the 10-state conference, which met in Atlanta, Ga.
