The Samford University chapter of Alpha Delta Pi sorority earned awards of excellence, the top honor, in eight categories at the district conference held Feb. 2 in Peachtree City, Ga.

The 140-member Samford chapter was rated against 51 college chapters from five southeastern states.

Samford ADPi's were cited for excellence in total membership education, new member coordinator, scholarship, quota, recruitment, finance, Panhellenic communication and philanthropy. The chapter raised $9,400 at a golf tournament last fall in support of the sorority's national philanthropy, Ronald McDonald House.

Amy Almand, a senior from Snellville, Ga., is Samford chapter president.
