National President Donna Smith Chereck (Alpha Phi, The University of Texas at Austin) presents a charter to the newly installed Kappa Lambda (University of San Diego) chapter.
Dr. Condoleezza Rice joined Alpha Chi Omega at the Gamma Delta chapter at the University of Denver. Until her senior year, she was the only African American member of the chapter. She was 19 years old when she graduated cum laude from the university in 1974. She was named Outstanding Senior Woman and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board. She earned a master's from the University of Notre Dame and a Ph.D. from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of International Studies. In 1993, she became Stanford University’s first woman provost and served in that position until 1999. In 2001, President George W. Bush appointed her national security advisor. Rice later was named the U.S. Secretary of State, the first black woman to serve in that capacity. A professor, consultant and author, she has won many awards. She is an articulate speaker, accomplished pianist and a football aficionado. She received Alpha Chi Omega's Award of Achievement in 1990.
Nancy Nitchman Leonard (Alpha Chi, Butler University) sits at a piano during a national convention. Nancy served as executive director from 1978-99. She continued to attend every convention, only missing one in 2010, until her death in 2012.
This one-page program includes a list of the luncheon speakers and a domestic violence awareness pin at the top. The back includes the words to the Alpha Chi Omega Grace and the Alpha Chi Omega Toast, as well as Alpha Chi Omega's statement of position on domestic violence.
Each year, Alpha Chi Omega recognizes and honors our members as they reach their 10-, 25-, 50-, 60- and 75-year anniversary milestones. This pin in a rosy bronze plate finish was created in 2018 to acknowledge the 10 years of sisterhood.
The Award of Distinction was renamed the Award of Achievement in 1955. The scope was broadened to include sisters who were making a difference in the world through education, journalism, politics, the arts, business, etc. This particular award was given to Karen Pomerantz Tandy (Gamma Rho, Texas Tech University) in 2006 for her professional work with the Drug Enforcement Administration, an agency of the United States Department of Justice. She was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 31, 2003. She was the first female head of the DEA.
