Keepsakes: Centre Greek pledge class

The Centre College Greek community recently announced its 2017 pledge class.

The Greek community at Centre College consists of eleven national and international organizations, six fraternities and five sororities. Members are dedicated to the ideals of brotherhood, sisterhood, leadership, scholastic achievement, community service, and social interaction.

Centre fraternities and sororities are active in the campus and local community, volunteering time and energy for service and philanthropic endeavors. Service and leadership projects include fundraisers for the United Way, Ronald McDonald House, CASA, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Other projects include mentoring at-risk local school children, and sponsoring citywide canned-food drives. Centre Greeks recorded more than 8,500 service hours last year, and raised more than $99,000 for charitable organizations.
