As part of National Volunteer Month, we’re recognizing a number of dedicated SigEp volunteers who give their time to support our chapters and mentor our undergraduate brothers. We’re grateful for the commitment of each of SigEp’s more than 3,000 volunteers.
Holly Lovern is chapter counselor for the North Carolina Gamma Chapter at Duke University. Lovern is gender violence services coordinator at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. At the 2018 Carlson Leadership Academy, Lovern received the Outstanding New Volunteer Award.
Why do you volunteer?
I volunteer with SigEp because I truly believe in the experience undergraduates, alumni, volunteers, and staff are working to build together — SigEp doesn’t just say they want to be different. SigEp makes waves to create a different Fraternity experience on college campuses and isn’t afraid to lead change. Culture change is hard and long and SigEp shows that progress and growth is possible — you just have to take the next step.
How has serving as a SigEp volunteer impacted your life?
Volunteering with SigEp has given me the opportunity to work with incredible undergraduates and meet volunteers, alumni, and staff who have become great friends. SigEp has created numerous opportunities for networking, professional development and continuous learning in the higher education environment.
