As another year comes to a close here at DePauw, we wanted to reflect on some of the amazing things our Panhellenic seniors have done. Each chapter has nominated one senior to be spotlighted here on our blog, but every single senior Panhellenic woman has changed our community in some way. Here's to you seniors! You will be missed!
Liz Weingartner-Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Chi Omega’s Exceptional Senior is Elizabeth Weingartner. Liz is graduating with a degree in Biochemistry. She also has a minor in German. She will be attending the University of Maryland in Baltimore and is pursuing a PhD in immunology. Liz served as the President of Alpha Chi Omega in the past term. She led the house with much grace, confidence and skill. She played an integral role in bringing the Miss Representation documentary film about women’s misrepresentation in the media to our chapter and organized the viewing of Miss Representation for DePauw as a whole. Liz recently organized a 30th anniversary and birthday party for our cook, Anita. She organized the full event and worked to raise funds to give Anita the gift of a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Liz is incredibly driven and not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Alpha Chi Omega and the DePauw community will miss her in the coming years, but is very excited to see what she will do in the future!
Kendall Quisenberry-Alpha Phi
Kendall is an incredible student, athlete, and sister. Despite her busy schedule and numerous commitments, Kendall always takes the time to invest in others' lives. She is someone that people enjoy being around because of her vibrant, genuine personality. She shares her love for life with those around her and she's never too busy to help a sister or friend. She is an English Writing major and an Education Studies minor. In her four years at DePauw, she has traveled to Ghana, Haiti, Nicaragua, France, taught English in Taiwan and learned so much from each experience. She swam for three years and was a conference champion. Kendall is a member of Kappa Delta Pi, Mortar Board and Order of Omega honor societies. She would consider receiving a Fulbright her biggest accomplishment in college. Kendall will be moving to Malaysia in January, and when she returns home she plans to go to grad school.
Brittany Sievers-Delta Gamma
Delta Gamma is nominating Brittany Sievers as our Panhellenic Exceptional Senior. Brittany is a graduating Delta Gamma from Manchester, Indiana. She is majoring in Studio Art, and her work has been featured in several art shows. Many of her clay pieces were recently displayed in the Senior Art Show. In addition, she is on the varsity track team and has placed nationally in discus throwing. Currently, she is ranked 33rd in the nation. She has been a leader in Delta Gamma, serving as the Director of Recruitment Records. Brittany is enthusiastic and committed, and she has been a wonderful member of her chapter.
Lee Harmon-Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Alpha Theta is proud to present Lee Harmon as an Exceptional Senior. Lee is a math major from St. Louis. Her warm personality embodies all of the values that Theta represents. As a leader of Greek InterVarsity, member of Mortar Board, and a star on the Track and Field team Lee has left a lasting impression on this campus. She unwaveringly dedicates herself to her faith, sport and academics. Always working late nights on her schoolwork, Lee is a great study buddy or perfect to lend an ear for a late night chat. Her scholastic hard work has paid off; being awarded the "Distinguished Woman in Math." Lee is supportive to all, and has spread her academic success to others as a Q Center tutor. Through her four years on this campus, Lee has branched out through the campus and enlightened many with her chipper smile and lighthearted charisma. Lee is friends with all, enemy to none, and can always put a smile on anyone's face at anytime.
Emily Eckert-Kappa Kappa Gamma
Kappa Kappa Gamma nominated Emily Eckert as the exceptional Panhellenic senior because she is an extremely kind person and a great role model in our house and on campus. She is always setting a great example for dedication to schoolwork by encouraging others to go to the library with her. She also encourages others to participate in other Greek organization's events on campus. Emily is passionate about Kappa and Panhellenic unity.
Libby Harmon-Pi Beta Phi
Pi Beta Phi would like to nominate Libby Harmon as our Panhellenic Exceptional Senior. Libby has been not only a good friend to every girl in our house; she is the first person to offer her help to any sister in need. She is a kinesiology sports and exercise science major, turbo kick instructor, and offers her support in any event hosted by, or involving another sister. She actively supports multiple campus activities, always offering her assistance. She will be greatly missed and we are so proud that she is a member of our chapter.
