Panhellenic Association selects new leaders

Last week, the University of Alabama Panhellenic Association announced the new group of student leaders selected to serve on its Executive Council for 2012.

Olivia Hunnicutt, a junior majoring in Spanish, was chosen to serve as the group’s president.

Hunnicutt previously worked as the organization’s vice president of administration and believes that she has the experience to lead the council.

“I am most looking forward to serving as a co-chair on an extension committee, which will work to bring a new sorority to campus,” Hunnicutt said. “Our Panhellenic community is growing along with the University, and we are thrilled to be able to bring another chapter to campus, especially after the huge success of Delta Gamma’s recent re-colonization.”

The Panhellenic Council is the largest women’s organization at the Capstone and is the governing body for 17 National Panhellenic Conference sororities and one associate member sorority.

The Council governs the group and consists of 10 officers who are chosen by a committee consisting of current council members, advisors and Greek Affairs staff members.

According to Hunnicutt , the main responsibility of the Executive Board is to administer all business related to the overall welfare of the Panhellenic Association.

“Aside from meeting weekly as a board, we hold bimonthly meetings with voting delegates from each chapter to relay important information and to discuss happenings within our Greek community,” Hunnicutt said.

Stephanie Cole, a junior majoring in pre-physical therapy, is excited for her new role as the Director of the Rho Chis. Rho Chis put aside their sorority allegiance during the rush process and effectively serve as recruitment counselors during the period.

“I am looking forward to working with my amazing fellow exec members, as well as all of the new Sigma Rho Chis,” Cole said. “I am striving to create a fun and informative spring class for the Rho Chis in order to best prepare them for recruitment in the fall.”

The incoming Vice President of Administration is Brandi Morrison, a sophomore from Tuscaloosa majoring in accounting. Morrison served in positions within her chapter, including Panhellenic Assistant, Recruitment Assistant and New Member Council. She also served as a member of Greek Programming Board, which helps plan Greek Week and Greek Fest.

“Serving as the vice president of administration, it is my goal to continue the positive effects of Greek Week through service organizations benefiting the Tuscaloosa community while raising money for a grant,” Morrison said. “I also plan to aid the sororities with their Philanthropic events around campus.”
