On Behalf of the AOII Foundation Board, I wanted to let all of you know that we have appointed Barbara Hiss Bruning to fill the final thirteen months of Kathy Jensen’s term of office as a Foundation Director, effective June 1, 2018. Kathy will remain in her position through May 31, 2018.
Barbara was initiated into Theta Psi chapter at the University of Toledo. She has currently been serving AOII as a Foundation Ambassador and as a member of the Foundation Governance Committee. In addition, Barbara has been representing AOII as a Panhellenic Delegate to the Rochester Alumnae Panhellenic. Since 1996, Barbara has been a member of the Rochester Alumnae chapter, and among other offices, she has served as their President.
Barbara is a Rose Award winner, a Life Loyal Charter member, an 1897 Society Founder, and she won the Philos Award for Excellence in Panhellenic for the Rochester Alumnae Chapter. Barbara established the Barbara Hiss Bruning Scholarship Fund within the AOII Foundation, which will benefit our collegians for many years to come.
Barbara and her husband, John, live in Pittsford, New York, a suburb of Rochester. She will spend the next three months learning her new Foundation Board responsibilities, before she assumes her official duties on June 1st. She will be at Leadership Institute in June, so those of you that do not know her will have a chance to get to know Barbara. I have attached a photo of Barbara so that you all can put a face with her name. Please join me in welcoming Barbara to her new role with the Foundation.
Judy Flessner, AOII Foundation Board President
