51sNt ational Convention Cov era g e JOURNAL Spring 2014 s25 day was the power lunch panel,” said Soror Hayes. “It was packed. All of the panelists and the moderator talked about what it actually means to be a woman of power in 2013, how to build generational wealth and suc-ceeding in the workplace.” Other activities included a lead-ership seminar featuring past na-tional presidents and past collegiate leaders, as well as workshops on fi-nancial planning and anti-hazing. Throughout the day, a “Penny Wars” service project was set up where each region had a tub and so-rors competed by contributing pen-nies to their region’s tub. The object of the war was to collect as many pennies as possible. Some sorors had fun with the competition by donat-ing dollars to the opposing regions’ tubs. The Penny Wars champion was the Eastern Region. All of the funds raised from the project were donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the Sorority’s Project 13 partners. s (PHOTO RIGHT) Collegiate members participate in work-shops during the Collegiate Takeover during the 51st National Convention.
