Worked "conferences" on campus as a summer job after my freshman year of college. Eastern rented out the dorms & facilities on its lovely campus every summer & I worked as the contact person assisting the various groups coming through. ...
My first big assignment was a sorority gathering. I was psyched. (Eastern didn't have sororities.) Turned out to be a sorority *reunion* and 19-year-old me was less psyched when I realized I'd be on-call to attend to a bunch of middle-aged women. ...
Then this amazing, raucous wave of pink and green showed up. This was a reunion for Philly-area Alpha Kappa Alpha members, in 1987 -- women who'd been active and activist as college students in the '60s. They had some *stories.* ...
It was the most enthusiastic group we hosted that summer -- lots of laughter, talking, singing, dancing. For the five days I was on-call they called a *lot* and kept me hopping. My busiest week, and the most fun I had in that job. ...
I've had the pleasure of meeting lots of AKAs since that summer (the pink & green is easy to spot) and I'm very pleased this year to have the chance to vote for one for the office of vice president. Those women back in '87 weren't campaigning, but they won my vote all the same.
