Beta Delta Chapter Professional Project Recognized as National Runner-Up

The Beta Delta chapter of Phi Upsilon Omicron recently submitted a Professional Project to the organization's National Council; this project was recognized as the National Runner-Up.  Phi Upsilon Omicron is a national honor society sponsored by the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences. The Professional Project details the chapter's service-based activities throughout the school year.  The Beta Delta chapter's project had the following theme: "ENGAGE in Servant Leadership for a Better Community."  The word "Engage" is an acronym representing ways to engage in leadership, specifically by Educating, Networking, Giving, Advocating, Granting, and Empowering.  Servant leadership is a concept developed by Robert Greenleaf that allows and encourages leaders to prioritize the needs of those he/she is serving.

 

The Beta Delta chapter members actively volunteered their time in a variety of ways in order to better their community.  These projects ranged from donating gifts to children through the Salvation Army's annual Angel Tree project to raising money and promoting awareness for heart disease research, treatment, and prevention.  The chapter's major project of the year was to develop and present basic nutrition and cooking education to parents attending Community Action of Southern Kentucky's monthly parent meeting.  The Beta Delta chapter purchased groceries, prepared a meal, and calculated the cost per serving for the meal, and provided samples and recipes to the parents that attended the meeting.  This and all of their activities were a huge success, and the Beta Delta chapter has high hopes and expectations for next year's Professional Project.
