    Xi Omega Chapter commemorated Arbor Day 2012 with a special tree planing ceremony in honor of former Chapter President Soror Phyllis Etheridge Young.

    The youngest of three daughters born to the late Robert Bruce and Bessie Dixon Etheridge, Soror Young became the first African American woman to lead a Federal Highway Administration State Office through her work at the U.S. Department of Transportation. But it was her tireless work as a civil rights and education activist, as well as her later work as an advocate for health and wellness within the community, that truly set Soror Phyllis apart.

     

    The tree planting ceremony in honor of Soror Young was covered in the Casey Trees blog.  You can view the full story here.
