The Panhellenic Creed states: “We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.”
In keeping with this ideal, the Nashville Area Panhellenic Alumnae Association will award $1000 scholarships to sorority women who exemplify the tenet of service to others.
