The Panhellenic Council at Centre College is making its name among such councils across the country. It has been awarded the National Panhellenic Council Excellence in Scholarship Programming award.
A number of factors contributed to Centre's Panhellenic Council garnering the award, including a booklet put out by the group and evidence that sorority women at Centre have higher grade point averages than non-Greek students, as well as roundtables and programming focused on scholarship, said Stacy Anne Hoehle, current vice president for risk management.
"The scholarship booklet was distributed to new members (of sororities)," Hoehle noted. "In it, goals and expectations are outlined.
"The Panhellenic Council and officers are behind the women to help them excel. Centre College is lucky to have women who are so excellent."
The booklet, titled "Panhellenic Council Scholarship Awareness Booklet: A Brief Guide to Upholding Scholarship and Resources Available to You as a Greek Woman at Centre College," includes statistics about Greek women's GPAs at Centre, scholarship tips and Panhellenic tutors for many of the courses of study at Centre.
