Pi Beta Phi

Chapter members Melissa Maros and Abbey Biddlecombe and Chapter President Shelby Furer attended a Pi Beta Phi workshop on learning how to advocate for Pi Beta Phi’s philanthropy Read>Lead>Achieve and promoting literacy in Atlanta. The workshop provided members with information about illiteracy rates, including the fact that 14 percent of the US adult population cannot read, and that being illiterate increases the odds of teen parenthood. Along with learning more about the frequency of illiteracy, they learned about better ways of communicating these ideas to others outside of the organization. Melissa and Abbey put together an action plan on how to bring the information back to the chapter so that everyone is able to benefit from the experience they had.
