Today, I am conversing with Michele Dawn Lefler. Michele and I are sorority sisters. We are not close in age, we did not attend the same schools, nor do we live near each other.
Our connection is fraternal. Our common bond is Alpha Phi. We share an appreciation for and an interest in each other because of our sorority connection. I am aware of Michele and her life here in the Cape Fear area because of the network formed by Alpha Phi.
While in college, we were both exposed to the same philanthropic efforts of our fraternity. Heart health has been a long standing campaign for Alpha Phi. My personal experiences with Alpha Phi date back to the early and mid-sixties, whereas, Michele's experiences all have occurred over the last 16 or so years.
Listen as Michele shares her story which powers her desire and drive to support the local Alpha Phi chapter at UNC-W. Heart health for women and the Red Dress campaign are as important today to the young Alpha Phi collegians at UNC-W as the lollipop sales were to the Alpha Phi collegians back in the late seventies at LSU-Shreveport.
