For Immediate Release
Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy's Alpha Phi Chapter of Kappa Epsilon was honored with the award for Recognition of Continued Excellence for the 2013-2015 Biennium at the 50th Biennial Kappa Epsilon Convention in Orlando, which took place from July 22-23, 2015. Kappa Epsilon is a professional fraternity for women students of pharmacy.
Ten representatives of the Alpha Chi chapter attended the event: Tracy Eckenrode, Katie Hilton, Rachel Hoffman, Rebecca Kramer, and Stephanie Mitchell attended as collegiate member representatives; Brianna Antonucci, Caitlyn Doyle, Alisha Ensell, and Jess Glass attended as collegiate alumni representatives, and Dr. Jennifer Elliott attended as a collegiate advisor representative.
The Award is based upon numerous Chapter reports. "Alpha Phi's Grand Council Connection Ivey Robbins specifically mentioned the continual growth of our Chapter, stating ‘Alpha Phi is a model chapter," said Caitlyn Doyle, Immediate Past President of Alpha Phi.
Doyle said that the Kappa Epsilon Grand Council was also impressed with the initiation of a new Risk Management position to better serve the Chapter's needs. This position was adopted from social Greek organizations and implemented in the Fall of 2014.
