Presidents Conference salutes Jane Price Harmon
This fall's Presidents Conference, a milestone in the history of Lambda Sigma and CWENS our forerunner organization, presented the Gift of Honor to the only president Lambda Sigma has ever had, Jane Price Harmon.
During the conference on Sept. 19-21 at Auburn University, current presidents and board members paid tribute to Harmon's service since the establishment of Lambda Sigma, and before as a key leader with CWENS. The Gift of Honor will from this time forward be named the Jane Price Harmon Gift of Honor.
Harmon served for nearly four decades with both CWENS and Lambda Sigma. Dr. Denise Rode from Northern Illinois University was welcomed as the new Lambda Sigma president. She will serve a three-year term. A story on the big weekend will be featured in the fall Diamond.
