Emily Flesch (Southeast Missouri State)  

“To me, having my alumnae dues sponsored means a fellow sister and alumnae member is here for me and looking out for me. They are excited for me to take my next steps in our sisterhood as an alumnae member. I am very appreciative of them doing this for me! If I could say anything to my sponsor, I would say, “Thank you! I appreciate the sponsorship for my alumnae dues, and I am very excited to become an alumna in a few weeks. This gesture means a lot to me and shows that my sisters will be there for me in the future!”

Kate Riordan (Nebraska Lincoln) 

“Having my alumnae dues sponsored means that I can continue to be connected to the organization and the women that have given me so much. Gamma Phi Beta has given me some of my best friends and opportunities and made me a better version of myself. Being able to continue my post-baccalaureate journey and still have this organization and these women by my side allows me to feel more confident about moving forward from my collegiate years. To my sponsor, thank you for your generosity and for giving me the opportunity to remain close to Gamma Phi Beta. This organization means so much to me and I'm thrilled to know Gamma Phi and all the things my sisters have instilled in me will continue with me beyond collegiate membership and into my next chapter.”

Layne Lackmann (South Carolina) 

“It means so much to me to have my dues sponsored. I have loved this chapter since they day I have joined, and it is so rewarding and generous to be given something after the work I have put in. This truly shows me how important this sisterhood is and how I will continue to be a Gamma Phi Beta after I graduate. Thank you [to my sponsor] so incredibly much for this generous offer. It means more to me than one will ever know and has helped show me how an act of kindness and love can affect the way I see my organization, even after years of membership.”

Amehra Welch (Washington State)

“Having my alumnae dues sponsored means that I have other sisters looking out for me. It was very unexpected gift to me! It is hard for me to think that my time as a collegiate membership is coming to an end. This is my reminder that my time in Gamma Phi is not done when I graduate, rather that it will continue. I'm grateful to be part of this sisterhood that looks out for its sisters, and showed me that my time is not done. I'm sponsors has given me a gift, that I will cherish. Thank you for showing me your Love of Gamma Phi Beta.”

Abigail Ageshen (Chapman)

“Having my alumnae dues sponsored means I can continue my involvement in Epsilon Nu and Gamma Phi Beta with financial freedom. Serving as the 2022 President of Epsilon Nu allowed me to meet hundreds of incredible Gamma Phi women, enhancing my love and admiration for the sorority. I’m ecstatic to continue building relationships as an alumna and grateful to my sponsor for allowing me to do so. To my sponsor, thank you so much! Sponsoring my dues means that you saw worth in me as an active member who would bring value as an alum. It is sisters like your’s belief that allow me to reach my fullest potential with unlimited support. I am eternally grateful to my sponsor, Epsilon Nu, and the incredible women of Gamma Phi Beta!”

Caitlin Josten (Indiana State)

“Having my alumnae dues being sponsored means that there is always a sister and alumnae member who cares for me. They are looking out for me and have my best interest at heart for my next steps within our sisterhood as an alumnae member. I am so thankful that they are able to do this for me and I am so appreciative of this. If I could say anything to my sponsor, I would say, “Thank you so much! I appreciate this and I cannot wait to become a proud alumna within the next few weeks. I cannot wait for the day where I can repay this to a member and show the love this chapter has given me to a future member.”

Gaby Hansen (Creighton)

“Receiving the gift of a Life Loyal Membership reminded me that Gamma Phi Beta is more than just an organization. It is truly a lifelong sisterhood that inspires women to build confidence every day, and I am so grateful to be a part of it. If I could say thank you to my sponsor publicly, I would tell her that her gift to me of becoming a Life Loyal Member is something I will never forget. Having all my alumnae dues paid for is one of the greatest gifts I've ever received. I want her to know that her support and encouragement throughout my collegiate years helped me become a better sister, friend, and leader.

Jacie Quinney (Texas A&M-College Station)

“Having my Life Loyal sponsored shows the continued effort and sisterhood that is Gamma Phi Beta. This is not just a four-year sorority, but the sponsorship really embodies the lifelong aspect of sisterhood. Knowing that not only do I have the option to be an alumna, but fellow sisters want me to be an alumna is gratifying in such a great way. If I could say thank-you to my sponsor publicly, I'd probably first start with a hug. I would say thank-you from the bottom of my heart. I went into college barely knowing a thing about sororities. While I was a collegiate member, I was chapter president and it was my whole life. Before receiving Life Loyal, I didn't know what to expect as an alumna or if that was even a possibility for me. But because of this award, I am able to pursue the alumna membership status and be as active as I was as a collegian. Thank you again!” 

Mackenzie Cosgrove (Maryland)

“Having my Life Loyal membership sponsored means that I am able to continue experiencing the love of Gamma Phi, without worrying about the financial aspect, which as a new graduate, is incredibly helpful. Gamma Phi has brought so much to my life- my best friends, new opportunities, and a chance to encourage others and myself to be strong and confident women- and I am forever grateful that I have been able to be a part of this organization, and that I may continue being a part of it for the rest of my life. I appreciate this sponsorship from the Tampa Bay Alumnae Chapter endlessly. I am proud to call Gamma Phi my home, and you have made it possible for me to continue to do so. Even as my life changes post-graduation, I know I still have Gamma Phi and her values."

Molly Nhean (Minnesota State-Mankato)

“I am so appreciative and thankful to be gifted a Life Loyal membership because it's a constant reminder of what it means to be a Gamma Phi Beta. Since Gamma Phi Beta has made such a positive impact on my life, I am so passionate about continuing to show my loyalty to our sisterhood, which has helped me become the strong and resilient leader I am today. A Life Loyal membership means more to me than just waived alumnae dues or benefits, it represents my true and constant loyalty to the sorority that has given me life-changing opportunities. Thank you so much to my amazing sponsors, Madeline Ebert, Haley Severson and Lindsay Champion. I am so grateful for your sponsorship because it reminds me that sisterhood is for a lifetime. I am just so touched that all of you continue to support me in my journey and are always my biggest cheerleaders. Thank you all for believing in me, and I am so lucky to call all of you incredibly inspiring women my sisters. Love you all to the moon and back.”

Meredith William (Kentucky)

“Having my international alumnae dues sponsored shows me that my impact in Gamma Phi goes beyond my collegiate chapter and that the connections I made with our advisors and local alumnae are the real, life-loyal kind. I couldn't thank Annabel Jones enough for her support of my chapter (Gamma Omicron) and her continued support and confidence in me as a recent graduate. She is exactly the kind of sister I aspire to imitate through being generous with my time and resources to give back to a community that supported me to get where I am today.”

Taylor Wiewiora (Kentucky)

“I loved my collegiate years in Gamma Phi Beta and cannot wait to see what this next chapter has in store. This gift will allow me to start on such a positive note as I make my transition to a proud alumna. As part of my alum experience, I am excited to share I have taken on the role of financial advisor for Delta Pi Chapter at Illinois State University. I am so excited to see how I can impact other women and foster their love for and growth in the chapter.”

Francesca Losh (Oklahoma)

“I could not be more grateful to have my alumnae dues sponsored by a community that has truly enriched my college experience. Moving to Oklahoma from Chicago was a very daunting experience at the beginning of my freshman year. Psi Chapter (Oklahoma) gave me a home at Oklahoma University right away and continued to give me a community full of empowering, encouraging and kind women. I would not be where I am today without my sisters and mentors, so to be able to continue my membership is truly an honor. I'm very excited to see how my Gamma Phi experience continues to grow after college. Thank you so much for the opportunity to continue my Gamma Phi journey and the ability to pour into a sisterhood that has given me so much. I cannot wait to see how Psi Chapter continues to grow for years to come.”

Kristen Olmstead (Oklahoma City)  

“Gamma Phi Beta has been my rock for the past four years. The women I met in the house became my role models and best friends, and they have helped me to develop into a woman I am incredibly proud of today. It means the world to me to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored because I can continue growing as a woman and young professional with my sisters by my side as well as connect with sisters across the country who will become my future role models and friends. My sponsor has given me such a special gift that I will cherish forever. I am incredibly thankful to her for her Labor, Loyalty and Love. It is because of her that I can continue to develop all the Core Values of Gamma Phi Beta through my life as a Life Loyal member of Gamma Phi Beta.” 

Victoria Pedersen (Nebraska-Lincoln)  

“It was an unexpected gift to have my alumnae dues sponsored. It has been very bittersweet to realize my time in college is coming to an end, as well as my time as a collegiate member. This was a reminder that Gamma Phi does not end when we graduate college but continues. I’m so grateful to be a part of a sisterhood that cares not only about collegiate members, but about investing in sisters once they graduate as well. It is a great reminder of the ways we can continue to invest in one another and strengthen our sisterhood as we move into the next stage of life.” 

Mallory Tompkins (Christopher Newport)  

“It means so much to be able to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored because it means I can be a part of Gamma Phi for life. The connections I have made through G-Phi here at school have meant so much to me and I can't wait to be able to continue making these connections for the rest of my life. I would say thank you to my parents for always supporting me and for always letting me know how proud they are of me and thank you to my sisters for constantly having my back and making sure I know I am loved and supported.”  

Caroline Blevins (Oklahoma State) 

“Having my Life Loyal membership sponsored is a huge blessing to me as I transition into this new membership stage. I look forward to remaining actively involved throughout my lifetime, and I've said so since day one. This is another step to a life full of Love, Labor, Learning and Loyalty. I am so thankful that Sally Wallace chose to sponsor me and my Life Loyal membership. Gamma Phi Beta gave me so much over my past four years at Oklahoma State University, and this proves that it continues to do so and will for life. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, but I wouldn't be where I am or who I am today without Gamma Phi Beta. I hope to contribute to this organization, and future sisters like others have graciously done for me one day.” 

Madeline Payne (Southern Methodist)  

“Having my Big Sister sponsor my Life Loyal membership reminds me that this sisterhood doesn’t end at graduation. As I transition from a collegiate member to an alumna, I know that I will always have the love, support and friendship of my amazing sisters. Kayla, thank you for the incredible generosity of your sponsorship! You truly exemplify the values of our sorority, and I am beyond thankful to have you as my Big Sister.” 

Alexa Jones (Christopher Newport) 

“Having my international alumnae dues sponsored is a reminder of this constant truth: The energy put forth into Gamma Phi is returned 1000x over. Our sisterhood transcends both time and location and this is evident to me through this sponsorship. My sisters in Gamma Phi, even the ones I have yet to meet like my sponsor, have inspired me daily. I am so grateful to have my dues sponsored and hope that one day I can do the same for another graduating senior. Thank you so much for investing in the future of Gamma Phi. The pandemic has been challenging, yet it is the kindness of sisters such as you that have inspired me to overcome. I hope one day I can have as much of an impact on sisters I have not even met as you have had on me.” 

Natalie Hirsch (Maryland)  

“I am so grateful to have my alumnae dues sponsored and to be a part of an organization with such strong support for its members. Being in Gamma Phi Beta has helped me become a leader, grow in strength and character, and has given me a lifelong sisterhood. Although I will miss my sisters at school, I can't wait to graduate knowing I have the support of alumnae across the world! Thank you, Catherine, for being a wonderful example of Love and Loyalty. I am so appreciative of you starting my lifetime commitment to Gamma Phi Beta after I graduate!” 

Catherine King (Maimi-Ohio) 

“It means a lot to have my chapter's recruitment advisor sponsor my international alumnae dues. It truly shows the True and Constant connections Gamma Phi Bets instills in us. I got to work with Kate for three years of recruitment as I held different positions including membership vice president and president. It means the world to have her recognize my dedication to this chapter. I would like to thank Kate for not only this sponsorship but her dedication and assistance to the Beta Epsilon Chapter. She’s truly the reason we were able to make it through our two years of COVID recruitment. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our chapter.” 

Chloe Higgins (Nebraska-Lincoln)

“Gamma Phi has become one of the dearest interests of my life over the past four years, and I cannot imagine a life after college without continuing engagement with Gamma Phi Beta. This incredibly generous donation means that I can continue being invested in the Sorority that has invested so much in me, the Sorority that has truly changed my life in the best way. To my donor, thank you for equipping women like me to continue living out the values and skills that I have gained throughout my membership in Gamma Phi Beta. Because of you, I am able to continue investing in the Sorority that has invested so much in me.”

“This is so kind of you! I am so excited to graduate, and this made it even better! I am truly touched by your kindness. It absolutely made my day! I love my chapter; I was even president!” 

Leticia Agnes Valle (California-Los Angeles) 

“Having my international dues sponsored my first year out of college means a lot to me as it shows that Gamma Phi Beta has recognized my contribution to Alpha Iota these past years. As financial vice president of my chapter during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was presented with unprecedented challenges and used this experience to grow as a leader and as an individual. I am honored to have my international dues sponsored for this reason and hope to sponsor a Gamma Phi's dues in the future.” 

Sarah McCord (Missouri State) 

“For me, it shows that this sisterhood looks out for you no matter where you are, what you look like or what you've done. It means the world to me to have this support so I can continue being involved in this sisterhood as an alumna, but also through helping other sisters in the same format! Thank you, Susan, and those at Gamma Phi Beta, for being True and Constant sisters! If I could say thank you to my sponsor publicly I would just express pure gratitude. I am so appreciative of the support other sisters give to alumnae, current members and more. I can't say thank you enough!" 

Ann Sargent (Delaware)  

It means the world to me to have my Life Loyal membership sponsored. I was sponsored by my chapter advisor Gabby, whom I had the opportunity to become close with as my chapter's President. Her sponsorship to me symbolizes the long-lasting relationships I gained through my time in Gamma Phi Beta, as well as my growth as a woman and as a sister through my collegiate membership. I am forever grateful to be a member of Gamma Phi Beta, and more grateful that Gabby made it possible for me."

Tessa Werley (Texas A&M-Commerce) 

“As a recipient of a Life Loyal sponsorship, I am reminded how strong this sisterhood is. Everyone cares deeply for one another, and I am honored to join all the women in alumnae status who will be true and constant friends to me! I will get to continue my commitment to a sisterhood that I love so much through the generosity of sisters that desire to give back. The women of Gamma Phi Beta embody love, labor, learning, and loyalty, and I am thrilled to do the same as a Life Loyal member.”

Again, thank you so much for your generosity and your advice!
