    Looking for Siena Medalist Nominations

    Convention 2014 Attendees were wowed by our Siena Medalist, Rachel Simmons.  She joined a prestigious group of women who have received this honor dating to 1937.

    Theta Phi Alpha’s Board of Trustees announces the search for nominations for Theta Phi Alpha’s next Siena Medalist to be awarded at the 2016 National Convention in St. Louis, Missouri.  The Siena Medal, named after Saint Catherine of Siena, is one of two honors our Fraternity bestows upon a non-member.  Please take some time to research and nominate an amazing woman who has done something worthy of this honor.  Nominees should be women of distinction in their profession, advocates for social service and humanitarianism or personal role models.

    o nominate a woman, visit http://thetaphialpha.celect.org/siena-medal-nominations to submit today! The deadline for nominations is June 1, 2015. For more information, please contact Karen Rubican, Board of Trustees at krubican@verizon.net.
