Maxine Shelly Turner Memorial Scholarship
April is the month for donations to our Memorial Scholarship to honor Maxine Shelly Turner, founding member of the Rho chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon, who was one of the 32 people lost to the tragic events at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007. Thank you to all who have helped us reach our goal of endowment level in prior years. Donations are still welcome through the course of this month, as it will further secure the future of these scholarships.
