Greek organizations honored at conferences

Several Greek organizations at Murray State have been honored with numerous prestigious awards, many even receiving national recognition.

Jason Hinson-Nolen, Greek life coordinator, said he is pleased that nearly every Greek organization that went to a national conference received an award.

Hinson-Nolen attributed the success of those organizations honored to the support they receive from Murray State and the Murray community.

Hinson-Nolen also acknowledged their strength as individuals.

“These awards are showing that something is being done right,” Hinson-Nolen said. “The students in these organizations truly have the support of Student Affairs, their individual chapter advisers and the community, which is helping them achieve these awards.”

Said Hinson-Nolen: “The strength of the Greek community at Murray State is what really made these awards possible,” Hinson-Nolen said.

Cody Waggoner, president of Sigma Chi, said the organization is more than just social events; it is about making a difference in the community.

“It is a rewarding feeling to have people recognize what the organization is accomplishing,” Waggoner said.

Elizabeth Tarter, president of Alpha Gamma Delta, said she could not be more proud of all that the organization has achieved.

Tarter, who was a part of the largest sorority recruitment in Murray State’s history, said she is excited to see what next semester will bring for AGD and for members new and old.

“We are so excited about all of the recent accomplishments,” Tarter said.
