Former Kearney resident and University of Nebraska at Kearney alumna Carol Lungrin was presented the Michaelanean Society Award during Alpha Phi International Fraternity’s 66th Biennial Convention held recently in Orlando, Fla.
The Michaelanean award is awarded each biennium to those who have shown outstanding loyalty and support for Alpha Phi at the local level. The award was first presented at the fraternity’s 1972 centennial convention.
Lungrin served as treasurer and president of the fraternity’s UNK alumnae chapter. In addition, she has held several advisory positions with the UNK collegiate chapter, including standards, scholarship, new member education, program development and chapter adviser over the past 13 years.
Alpha Phi International Fraternity was founded at Syracuse University in 1872 as one of the first Greek societies for women. Alpha Phi is dedicated to promoting sisterhood, cultivating leadership, encouraging intellectual curiosity and advocating service.
The organization is comprised of more than 140 collegiate chapters and more than 130 alumnae chapters throughout the United States and Canada. The Alpha Phi Foundation is the fraternity’s philanthropic and educational partner. Through contributions from chapters, individual members and friends, the foundation supports women’s cardiac health, and other charitable and educational projects.
