HIGH POINT, N.C., March 24, 2009 – Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity at High Point University took part in a special service project as part of the group’s annual Sectionals Conference, held on March 20.
This year’s project, headed by APO member Meighan Avalos, consisted of creating candy-filled clay flowerpots and making cards, which will be sent to Wake Forest Children’s Hospital as well as local elementary schools. The group also participated in a toiletry drive.
The Sectional Conference, a gathering of APO chapters in 15 schools across North Carolina, is designed to promote leadership among members of APO through workshops designed to teach principles about a variety of topics that the individuals can take back to their respective chapters, and also promotes fellowship among chapters and provides an opportunity for a larger service project to be completed at the conference.
