Sorority information seminar is Sunday


The keynote speaker at this year’s Fayette County Sorority Rush Information Session is Mary Ann Stark, the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority’s 1st alternate Delegate to the National Panhellenic Conference.

The local session, conducted annually by the Atlanta Southern Crescent Alumnae Panhellenic Association (ASCAPA), is Sunday, April 26, at 2 p.m. at St Paul Lutheran School & Church in

Peachtree City.

All area high school senior and junior girls and their parents are invited to attend the session to learn about the benefits of sorority membership — academic, leadership, altruistic, social – and what to expect during rush, and how to have a successful experience.

Attendees are also told how to use ASCAPA’s recommendation service to get all the recommendations they need.

Girls who aren’t sure about joining and want to learn more about sororities and what they can offer during and after college are especially encouraged to attend and ask questions.

The ASCAPA website has additional details about sororities as well as the recommendation request form. Girls who are definitely rushing should download and complete the form before the meeting and turn it in at the session. For more details, go to and click on recruitment.

The featured speaker, Stark, was initiated into Alpha Omicron Pi at Auburn and has remained involved for over 25 years. She has been awarded several honors including the Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic Woman of the Year award in recognition of over a decade of outstanding service in civic affairs, education, arts and the Greek community. She was also given the Presidential

Citation in recognition for her outstanding service, dedication and commitment to Alpha Omicron Pi. She has worked with chapters throughout

Georgia and across the country and in Canada to advise them in recruitment, leadership and philanthropy.

In addition to Stark’s remarks, attendees will hear from local sorority collegians who will share their perspectives about sorority membership and give rush advice.  Door prizes will also be awarded during the session.

Local NPC sorority alumnae will be in attendance at the session to meet the girls for whom they may be writing recommendations.

ASCAPA was chartered in February 2001 and is affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), which was founded in 1902 and is an umbrella organization for 26 inter/national women’s fraternities and sororities.
