Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation Announces New Scholarship Honoring Past International President
The establishment of a new scholarship honoring long-time DPhiE volunteer and past International President, Arleen Kruger Honick, was announced by the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation board.
A legacy of the Psi chapter, Arleen joined DPhiE in 1965 as a collegiate at the University of Georgia. She was very involved as an undergraduate, and soon after graduation Arleen was recruited to volunteer as an advisor. Over the next few years, Arleen rose in the volunteer ranks until, in 1979, she ascended to the highest role as Delta Phi Epsilon’s International President.
Recipients of the Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship must be undergraduate members of the Psi chapter at the University of Georgia, Arleen’s home chapter. This scholarship will be awarded for the first time to a sister from the current round of applicants for the 2018-2019 academic year.
The scholarship is endowed by the Psi chapter and friends and family of Arleen in partnership with the Foundation, which provides academic scholarships as well as personal development workshops for the DPhiE sisterhood, both active members and alumnae.
Education plays a large role in Arleen’s life, as she worked for many years as a school teacher in Georgia. The establishment of this scholarship in her honor is a true testament to both her love for DPhiE as well as for education.
Arleen resides in Atlanta, GA, and is currently serving Delta Phi Epsilon as an active member of our International Governing Board.
