Abigail Ross
Epsilon Theta, American University

Abby is a recent graduate of American University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in public administration and policy. She joined AEPhi as a freshman and notes this as one of the best decisions of her college career. Abby is originally from Los Angeles, CA, so AEPhi really helped make her new city of DC feel like home. Early on in her time in AEPhi she served as alumnae chair, planning and coordinating a brunch for chapter alumnae still in the DC area. Abby’s involvement only grew as she served on her chapter’s executive board as vice president-recruitment for the 2017 year. Getting the opportunity to work with other members of the executive board, recruitment board, and the Panhellenic community in order to plan and execute a successful recruitment is one of her fondest memories of her time in her chapter. Outside of AEPhi, Abby worked as a religious school teacher at a local synagogue. She loves working with kids and teaching them about Jewish values in fun and innovative ways. Abby is a huge fan of sports (particularly the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Dodgers) and sushi! After her time as a TEC, her plan is to work for a non-profit making legislative change for social justice causes. Abby is excited to travel the country meeting sisters from Atlantic to Pacific!

Delaney is a recent graduate of Texas A&M University and received a bachelor's degree in allied health.  As a freshman, Delaney became very involved with a then local on-campus sorority which blossomed into the beautiful new Beta Xi Chapter. Delaney spearheaded that transition, with a goal of making the colony a home for as many women across campus as possible. As a collegian, she served as president, ritualist and sisterhood chair. Along with her dedication to AEPhi, Delaney also served as president of Chabad Jewish Student Group and captain of her intramural soccer team. She was involved in many other on-campus organizations as well, including the Pre-Medical Society, Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society, Order of Omega, and the sorority intramural team, as well as being a regular volunteer at the local animal shelter. In appreciation of her work in the community, Delaney was honored by the mayor of College Station, an AEPhi alumna, with the naming May 3, 2015, "Delaney Becker Day." Delaney is very proud of her accomplishments within her chapter, and is very excited to begin her journey as a TEC to help other chapters and colonies from Atlantic to Pacific! Delaney is hoping to attend nursing school after her time as a TEC and to help impact as many people in her community as she can. When Delaney is not traveling, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, crafting, watching movies, and playing soccer.
