PHI ETA SIGMA'S
Running for Reading
In 2021 Phi Eta Sigma will launch our Member of Distinction program. Students will have the chance to earn a special level of distinction to their Phi Eta Sigma membership by participating in qualifying national and local chapter events. The first class will be recognized at the 2022 National Convention and will receive exclusive graduation regalia only available to those who meet the requirements. For more detailed information about the Member of Distinction program and how to qualify, click the button below.
October 14 will bring us one year away from our 2022 National Convention in Birmingham, Alabama, and we are starting the year leading up to the convention with a Virtual 5K among all our chapters nationwide, with the goal of raising $10,000.
Runners and schools can sign up now for the run through the RunSignUp portal linked above. Participants will be able to complete their run between Oct. 14 and 28, with each runner able to provide a personalized link to donors or sponsors. Contributions will be tracked at the national office with awards to be given to the individuals and chapters with the most contributions raised. Any questions about the 5K can be answered by Brett Hudson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-348-4805.
