She served the chapter at Drury University, during her undergraduate years, as Vice President of Public Relations and President. She is a proud Zeta Tau Alpha alumna currently pursuing her master’s degree in Advertising at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

In addition to Gamma Sigma Alpha, Rodak was involved in the Panhellenic Council, Drury’s Advertising Team, Mortar Board and logged over 200 hours in community service. Her service involvement benefited the Humane Society of Tulsa, the Boys and Girls Club and Relay for Life.

When asked about the benefits of her involvement with Gamma Sigma Alpha, Rodak said, “My membership in both Gamma Sigma Alpha and the Greek community has helped me develop valuable skills for the professional workplace. I’ve gained experience as a leader among my peers, improved my interpersonal communication skills, and learned how to become an effective team player.”

A professor at Drury wrote Rodak’s reference letter and stated, “I am continually amazed at the involvement and passion Mallorie possesses in every aspect of her busy life. She is able to juggle several leadership positions, organizational memberships, theater commitments and academic work and still be passionate and enthusiastic about every task that comes her way.” Rodak is another student Gamma Sigma Alpha is proud to call a member of the society!

Scholarship Spotlight: Paige Fennell

PaigeFennell2009

“Since becoming a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, I have been honored to join the Order of Omega and Gamma Sigma Alpha. That recognition was extremely important since there are many misconceptions about the academic abilities of students in a Greek organization,” wrote Paige Fennell in her scholarship application. Fennell, a graduate of the University of South Carolina was one of our six 2009-2010 graduate student scholarship recipients. She is currently pursuing her graduate degree in teaching at the University of South Carolina. A former professor said, “She is a born educator and a gifted communicator! I am immensely proud of her work and have every expectation that she will go on to distinguish herself in graduate school and beyond.”

Fennell is an outstanding student, but also realized she could learn a lot outside of the classroom and excelled as a student employee, working with the Registrar’s office and the Department of Education. In addition to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, she was involved in many other student organizations and volunteered in the community. She served as a tutor to high school students and was involved as a minority peer mentor.

Gamma Sigma Alpha is proud to support Paige Fennell as she pursues her dreams and hopes that her leadership will inspire a future generation of educators!
