BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (Dec. 18, 2017) — Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity is devastated by the loss of Hailee Conrad, 19, a collegiate member of AOII’s Kappa Omega Chapter at the University of Kentucky, who passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Dec. 14. Alpha Omicron Pi sends its deepest condolences to Conrad’s family and to the sisters of the Kappa Omega Chapter. It is Alpha Omicron Pi’s hope that members will find the support they need through the ties of sisterhood and comfort from friends and family. Alpha Omicron Pi is grateful for the University of Kentucky community and all those who are offering support to our members, while keeping Conrad’s loved ones in their thoughts during this difficult time.
Her family asks that in lieu of flowers, please take time to help others through donations or volunteering at a local domestic or child abuse charity. If you cannot locate a charity, please send donations in memory of Hailee Jean Conrad to St. Mary’s Catholic School Tuition Assistance Fund. These can be mailed to 2211 E Lakeveiw Dr, Johnson City, TN, 37601. Memories and condolences may be sent to the Conrad family via www.morrisbaker.com.
Alpha Omicron Pi will provide information at a later date about a formal draping of the badge in coordination with the Kappa Omega Chapter. The preferred method of draping the badge is to pin the badge through a piece of black ribbon. Collegiate and alumnae chapters may also hold the Memorial Ritual for chapters and members, a ceremony intended for initiated members of Alpha Omicron Pi to honor a deceased member.
