New officers installed, scholarships awarded at annual meeting of Clearwater Alumnae Panhellenic

— Nadine Nickeson of Alpha Omicron Pi was installed as president of Clearwater Alumnae Panhellenic at the group’s annual meeting on May 17 at the Countryside Country Club.

Joining her on the executive board of the Panhellenic Council in 2014-2015 are Mary Beth Toland of Alpha Chi Omega, vice president; Jackie Stubba of Alpha Phi, secretary; and Nancy Cerwin of Alpha Sigma Alpha, treasurer.

The presentation of college scholarships to three local sorority women was also on the agenda that day. This year’s recipients were Gabrielle Adams, a member of Zeta Tau Alpha at Florida Gulf Coast University; Christina DuPree, an initiate of Alpha Sigma Tau at St. Leo University; and Kasey Call of Alpha Omicron Pi, who attends Florida State University.

Recipients are selected on the basis of scholastic achievement, participation in sorority and campus activities, personal goals, initiative and financial need.

Over $150,000 in scholarship monies has been awarded to 153 college women since 1975.

The organization’s major fund raiser, Premiere Night at the Largo Cultural Center, took place in February.

Pat Leslie of Alpha Phi was recipient of the 2014 Panhellenic Achievement Award. Leslie was recognized for her outstanding service to her sorority and the community. Last year’s recipient, Gloria Hollingsworth of Alpha Chi Omega, made the presentation.

Clearwater Alumnae Panhellenic is composed of some 350 college alumnae who are initiated members of a National Panhellenic Conference sorority. Twenty-one sororities are represented.

Its purpose is “To promote interfraternity friendship and cooperation ... To promote the high ideals, purpose and accomplishment of the fraternity system.”

Annual social activities include the President’s Reception in September, Literary Muse Luncheon in November and the Tri-City Panhellenic Luncheon in February. Members also have the opportunity to join the Panhellenic bridge group, which meets year-round, and the Panhellenic Book Club, which meets October through May.
