Alumna, Megan Haines Morris was awarded the 'Howler Award' at ASU's Pride day last week. This award is given to someone that gives back to ASU through time, talent and spirit. Megan is not only the past AOII chapter advisor, she is also the ASU cheerleading coach. Way to go Megan! So excited for you. This could not have gone to a better or more deserving person.

As many of you know, this past Sunday was Superbowl Sunday. In Jonesboro, AR there is a LARGE fundraiser called the St. Jude Superbowl S'travaganza. 2013 was the 20th year for this amazing event. Over the past 20 years this fundraiser has been able to give back over $2.6 million. This year was even bigger and I'm sure there will be great numbers to report in the next couple of weeks. The family that started this event is Fred & Susan Cathcart of Jonesboro, AR. They lost one of their daughters to childhood cancer. This fundraiser was founded in her memory. Susan is a close family friend of mine and she approached me about having some AOII's help with the check-in process of this event. As you can imagine it takes many volunteers to pull this off when you are hosting around 1,400 people. I said of course and asked the girls if anyone could help. 23 AMAZING ladies said yes and even more would have helped if there wasn't a limit on volunteers. These ladies were a HUGE help in making this event so successful. Big Thank You to Taylor Leslie, Trinity Jones, Colby Hundley, Alex Harrell, Miranda Greenway, Lexie McEntire, Megan Smith, Leigha Blankenship, Keighley Barber, Alex Davis, Allison Nichols, Amy Weaver, Emily Bulkley, Micah Rogers, Katie Aldridge, Jade Martin, Jesika Boles, Beth Massey, Sabrah Futrell, Brooke Hall and Madison Riley. I would also like to thank the 2 AOII alumnae that helped out, Lindsey Hawkins and Breanna Buck. Thanks Ladies!
