At the 2023 National Convention, we had the honor of awarding a Zachary Stoddard Young Alumni Award to Rebekah Franolich, Life Member of the Alpha Omega Chapter at the University of Pittsburgh. The Zachary Stoddard Young Alumni Award is named in honor of Nu Alpha Life Member and past J. Lee Burke Student Achievement Award Recipient Zachary Stoddard. Brother Stoddard was a pure soul, a warm heart, and a friend to everyone he met. We continue his legacy by awarding young alumni who exemplify the values of the Kappa Kappa Psi Alumni Association.
A testimony of her service reads, "Rebekah and I have worked together on the Northeast District council, where she was my successor as Secretary/Treasurer. When she was first elected, I knew that she had so much potential. By the end of our term, she truly strove for the highest by making the position improve and helping mentor future successors. She also was a part of the National Communications Committee when it began in early 2018. All the contributions she has made then until now truly demonstrate the strong foundation that has been set with the committee. As an alumnus, she has served as fundraising chair for the Northeast District Alumni Association and has helped establish the Western Pennsylvania Alumni Association. Rebekah also continues to serve the bands in various capacities such as serving on band staff at Pitt, participating in the National Scout Guide Symphony Orchestra and performed in the United Kingdom. We have had a great bond over the years, and it has been great to see her help my home chapter get back on its feet and provide them with the resources they need."
Please help us congratulate our 2023 Zachary Stoddard Young Alumni Award recipient, Rebekah Franolich!! 🎉🎉🎉
