A graduate of Purdue University, Stephanie has worked with the Phi Kappa Psi Foundation for the past decade in various capacities. From oversight of events and logistics for the Foundation and Fraternity, maintenance of Laurel Hall, and developing marketing and solicitation materials, her dedication has been invaluable and will be missed. We took this opportunity to ask her a couple of questions about her time here with Phi Kappa Psi, and what the future holds for her.
PKP: What has been your greatest accomplishment?
Stephanie: Pulling off the golf outings and multiple donor events during GACs since 2008 while still raising money for the Foundation. In 2014, the Foundation's 100th, I planned an 85th birthday party for Jerry Nelson, a Founders Cup golf outing, a Roast and Toast for our outgoing Chairman Wayne Wilson, a Founders League/Bridge Builder donor reception and a Letterman & Moore donor reception for undergraduates all while coordinating 100 years of the Foundation, which included 100 donuts, 100 cupcakes and 100 cake pops alongside completing the 100 years of the Foundation Video. It was a busy, crazy and magnificent time!
PKP: What will you miss the most?
Stephanie: I'll miss Laurel Hall and the rest of the staff. The building is inspiring/unique and having the opportunity to ensure it shines and stands tall among other Fraternal headquarters has been a privilege. I've also enjoyed working alongside some of the most passionate and dedicated individuals that I have ever met. Their friendship and professionalism will definitely be missed.
PKP: What do you look forward to most with your next opportunity with the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville?
Stephanie: I am excited to put the work expertise I have learned to good use for an organization so closely aligned with Phi Kappa Psi. I hope to truly strengthen the ties Phi Kappa Psi has with their official philanthropy, the Boys & Girls Club.
PKP: Tell us a little bit about your time on staff and the roles you have had the opportunity to serve the Fraternity and Foundation.
Stephanie: In 2005, I started as a temp Administrative Assistant with the Foundation. Over the last 10 years, Ben Nicol has allowed me to grow professionally and entrusted me with the scholarship and fellowship program (the largest granting organization in the Greek community), chapter housing campaigns, communications, solicitations, branding, messaging, events and overall appearance of the Phi Kappa Psi Foundation. His trust in a non-member with a passion for this organization has been unwavering and deeply appreciated. I owe him immensely and will miss his championing and backing more than he knows!
Join us in thanking Stephanie for all of her hard work and dedication through the years. We wish her nothing but the best in her new role.
