THE PRESIDENT’S CORNER Greetings Sorors!!! Happy New Year!!! It is with joy and excitement I bring you greetings. As we embark upon a new year, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the outgoing administration. Your tireless efforts, love, and dedication to our beloved Psi Gamma Omega has moved our chapter forward into a new day; we say THANK YOU! My vision for PGO is that we are on the GO—moving forward while impacting our community through service, building leaders through mentoring, and increasing our chapter membership. Sorors, we can do it! Sorors, as we begin the second half of “Launching New Dimensions of Servicesm,” we should be prepared to serve. As we go forth and continue to serve the Northern Orange County Community through the Five Targets: Educational Enrichment, Health Promotion, Family Strengthening, Environmental Ownership, and Global Impact, let us remember the principles and foundation set before us by our founders. I am honored to represent you Sorors, an amazingly talented group of professional women, as your new Basileus! Sisterly love, Soror Maggie Holly. PGO Chapter Basileus. 2017-2018

THE VICE-PRESIDENT’S SIDEBAR Greetings Dear Sorors, It is with great enthusiasm that I write to express sincere gratitude for the opportunity to serve as our Psi Gamma Omega Anti-Basileus. I know this year will be full of many exciting adventures and challenges, as we work to promote our dear sisterhood, and I am simply delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside such talented sisters! Together, I know 2017 will be one to remember, and I solicit your support and continuous commitment, as we all continue "Launching New Dimensions of Servicesm” in our programming, giving and serving. As the year gets underway, please know I sincerely look forward to polishing and proudly wearing my pearls of sisterhood and service with you! Let's make 2017 a splendidly blessed year! With Sisterly Enthusiasm, Soror Alisa R. McLean, Ed.D. , PGO Chapter Anti-Basileus, 2017-2018
