Delta Phi Epsilon Announces Appointment Of Heather Locke Green To Role Of International Ritualist

Philadelphia, PA – Delta Phi Epsilon is pleased to announce the appointment of Heather Locke Green, Beta Chi chapter at St. Norbert College, to the role of International Ritualist, following almost two decades of service in that role by Cheryl Lamm, Rho chapter at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, Past International President from 1996-1999.

The International Ritualist serves a key role within the sorority as the caretaker of Delta Phi Epsilon’s Ritual.  This dedicated volunteer works with the International Governing Board on needed updates and/or changes to Ritual, and performs Ritual upon the request of a chapter, association or the International Governing Board.

“Heather deeply connects with our history and our future, and the role that Ritual plays in the DPhiE sorority experience,” said Roxanne Donovan, International President. “She has a wonderful role model to follow, and Cheryl Lamm’s leadership paves the way for Heather to help new generations of members experience the meaningful rituals we share.”

Donovan said the sorority is grateful for Past International President Lamm’s service, and for the foundation she set for the key role of International Ritualist, caretaker to a key element of our sorority experience. “Cheryl set the highest bar, recognizing that the sisterhood experience evolves through the stages of our lives and is consequently enriched through the beauty and solemnity of our various rituals,” Donovan said.

Ms Green has served Delta Phi Epsilon in many volunteer and leadership roles, including Past International President of the Educational Foundation, current International Governing Board Member, and local chapter advisor. 

“Following in the footsteps of a legend like Cheryl will not be easy, but I am honored and energized by the challenge and the important work to be done,” Ms. Locke Green said. “As International Ritualist, I will carry on the traditions that keep our sisterhood bond strong, while remaining open to the evolution of our lives, our selves and society.”
