sisters since she passed away May 8, 2013.
Psi alumna, Jaime Elduen Keith will be serving as
Seattle Alumnae’s Fundraising Chair, and concurrently as Psi’s Philanthropy/Fundraising Advisor to

are already well on our way with over $8,000 raised
toward the required total of $35K. The Hicks/
Thomas family has agreed to contribute an
additional $3,000, with the possibility for future
contributions as well.
There will be many opportunities to support the
scholarship over the coming biennium, or you may

All donations are tax-deductible. Please be sure to
note in the memo line that your donation is for
the Nancy Hicks Memorial Endowed Scholarship,
so that your donation is processed correctly.
Congratulations to our 2014-2015 Seattle Alumnae Officers! These officers will meet in July, following Convention, to plan the next alumnae year. If you have any ideas, please let one of these women know.
