CPC earns prestigious Excellence Award

-

The University of Southern Mississippi’s College Panhellenic Council (CPC) was one of 14 colleges, chosen from a pool of approximately 600 schools, to receive the College Panhellenic Excellence Award from the National Panhellenic Council (NPC). The top scoring groups are recognized based on academics, programming and community relations.

Southern Miss’ CPC, comprised of seven national Greek sororities, was the only college in Mississippi to receive the Excellence Award.

“NPC received scores of nominations to recognize the outstanding work and achievements of undergraduate sorority women who are working together,” said Nicki Meneley, Executive Director of the conference. “These awards are given to those who are following the exemplary standards set for Panhellenic women.”

Southern Miss was chosen for excelling in the seven core functions: recruitment, Panhellenic structure, communication with NPC area advisor, judicial procedures, Panhellenic programming, academics and Panhellenic community impact and relations.

“This award shows that the Southern Miss Greek experience stands out among the rest in the nation,” said Serena Williams, CPC president. “Receiving this award was possible because each of the vice presidents went above and beyond their call of duty. They are all innovative and passionate women that care about bettering our Panhellenic community.”

This award shows that when we all work together we can achieve anything,” said Melissa Sharp, assistant director of Greek Life. “It reflects what our organization is already doing and highlights the strengths of the community.”
