International Loyalty Award
This award is presented to an alumna member of Delta Zeta that lives outside the United States and Canada and who has made a significant contribution to her sorority or the Panhellenic community through her loyalty, interest, and devotion. Since this award is not a chapter award, you may wish to nominate someone who is not a member of your alumnae chapter but who you know has fulfilled the qualifications for this award. This may be a person who lives in an area where an organized chapter does not currently exist. All women living on overseas military bases and overseas US territories, including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa are also eligible for this award.
2013: Joan E. Hollein, Western Illinois - Epsilon Omicron.
Joan, an Army Major stationed in Germany, has reached out to numerous Delta Zeta alumnae at military bases across Europe, including on her base in Wiesbaden.
2012: no award given
2011 - Heather Baily
The first ever winner of the International Loyalty Award is originally from Region VI, as she was initiated into Omicron Tau, the closed chapter at Brock University. Heather pledged in 1996 and graduated with an accounting degree in 2000. She was a member of the now closed Golden Horseshoe Alumnae Chapter, and since moving to London, England, has been involved with the UK Alumnae Panhellenic, serving as president since 2008. She has planned many social events for the group and has helped organize and award Panhellenic scholarships to women graduating from the ACS International Schools in London. One sister said “She is always willing to meet up for lunch or dinner in London. This has come in handy when you just want a chat with a fellow DZ sister.” Heather demonstrates no matter how far away one is from home, it’s still possible to contribute to Delta Zeta and the Panhellenic Community. Congratulations Heather!
