Passing the Torch

Tonight marks the end of my term as Vice President of Risk Management for the Panhellenic Council at my university. If you don't know much about Greek Life, this means that for the past year I've overseen the health, wellness and potential risk of all Panhellenic women in my community. If you're still lost, it means I was in charge of making sure thousands of sorority women on my campus were healthy and happy.

If I were to tell you about my job description and all the programs I was in charge of you'd become mentally exhausted. I speak humbly and not overconfidently, but it was a very large task. I know that I made improvements but that there were also plans I made that were not executed. I tried my absolute best, but as we all know, there's always room for growth.

The reason I'm writing about this is because passing the torch and title means that I will regain a great deal of time in my life. This leadership position took up nearly 10 hours a week, and often more! Do you realize what this means? I will now have more time to blog, train for my half marathons, see my friends, go out, be with my amazing boyfriend, read and finish the last semester of my college career with a little less stress! I'm thrilled just thinking about it.

I absolutely loved my role as VP of Risk Management. My passion in life is to care for others and ensure they are healthy, both mentally and physically. And I can't say enough about the wonderful women I served my term with. As a council, we took so many steps forward. We instituted new educational programs, increased accountability and created new initiatives that have already shown success. As crazy busy as we all were, we became very close friends. I don't regret one moment of the last year and am so thankful for the hundreds of Greek women I came to know. I wish the newly elected Panhellenic Council the best of luck!

I love my council!

Cheers to a great year!
