Talking Alumnae Initiate

Greetings All Alpha Phis !!!

Thanks to Jill Flewitt for introducing me to this site. My name is Jeannie Ray and on November second i will become an Alumni Initiate of Alpha Phi. I'm very excited and nervous. For 6 years i have been a member of Tau Beta Sigma (they didn't have Alpha Phi at U of H). But when you graduate there is nothing to do, really. To top that off i moved from Houston (big city) to Atwater,Ohio (very, very small town).

I always wanted to join a greek organization but had a tough time because I'm black. On my campus ethnicities usually stayed within their "color" sorority. It was an unspoken thing and it was just the way things were done. But i never got it, ya know? All my friends are white and it was natural for mt to do what they were doing. I didn't care about color issues since i had always been teased that i was an oreo (black on the outside, white on the inside). When i rushed ppl looked at me like i was nuts but i just took the information and moved on. I never recieved a bid but that was ok. What was not ok was one of the girls actually telling me "I thought ya'll had your own sororities".

Anyway Superfast to the present. I met a Phi named Patti Shears. She is the most wonderful person i have ever met and she really opened my eyes to the organization. She offered to be my sponsor, but me intouch with a the chapter at U of Akron and let them know i was interested in serving on their house board. These ladies made me feel so right and at home there was no way i could say no.

So to all that helped make this happen, Thankyou!!!

Congratulations, Jeannie Ray! Alpha Phi is a terrific organization. My local sorority little sister's mother is an Alpha Phi from LSU. Unfortunately, the chapter closed and there weren't enough women in her area to form an alumnae chapter. She still pays international dues to be in good standing though. Best of luck to you!

Thanks to ALL

First i have to say that when i saw all the responses, i cried real tears at WORK! I didn't expect such a big response. Thank you Jill SO much for introducing me to this site.

The ceremony was WONDERFUL. My big gave me Ivys and Forget-me-nots. The ladies of Eta Gamma were great. Very loving and wonderful. I'm proud to serve on their House Board.

Dawn Dishes is an advisor and i know i will learn a great deal from her and her mother (who was just initiated as well). They are both great ladies.

I hope to learn alot and live up to the high standards of the organization. I'll always wear my badge with PRIDE.

With Much Phi Love,

Jaycrib
