NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Two Oklahoma chapters picked up top honors as Alpha Pi Omega announced its national award winners on July 14.

The sorority’s newest chapter, the Iota Pi Chapter in Cherokee County was named the 2017-18 Professional Chapter of the Year.

To be considered for the award, the chapter submitted a portfolio, highlighting its members’ community involvement, individual awards and commitment to community service. The chapter’s current roster features a 2018 “Remember the Removal” bike ride participant, a current member of Leadership Tahlequah and one of UNITY’s 25 Under 25 Native Youth Leaders.

“It’s an honor to have the national recognition from our other sisters,” Iota Pi Chapter president and Cherokee Nation citizen Haley Noe said. “Hopefully we can continue to show more involvement both in the community and for our area sisters.”
