The Alumni and Volunteer Corporation for the Kentucky Epsilon Chapter at Murray State has generously committed $5,000 to the Phillip A. Cox Volunteer Institute.
The AVC decided to give to the endowment because their chapter has benefited from very strong support from volunteers, winning a Buchanan Cup at two out of the past three Grand Chapter Conclaves.
“Kentucky Epsilon’s success and stability have come at the hands of great undergraduate leadership coupled with an ever-vigilant volunteer base committed to a culture of excellence,” said AVC President Aaron Dail, Murray State ‘05.
The AVC’s generous donation will go toward empowering and educating alumni-volunteers who have successful careers and busy family lives, making training available and accessible locally.
“We hope it helps move this initiative furiously forward to help volunteers engage with their chapters,” Dail said.
The Cox Institute was announced at the 2015 Grand Chapter Conclave in Nashville. The new volunteer training initiative honors outgoing Grand President Phillip A. Cox and provides education and a collaborative environment for volunteers around the country. The first series of one-day institutes were held this fall in six cities.
