Our shining Star

Thank you Leona Stone Scott

PLPAA started a new tradition last year – recognizing alumnae who have gone above and beyond to assist their Sister alumnae. The Alumnae Achievement Award is given to deserving Sisters each year at our Annual Meeting in June during Reunion Weekend.

This year we recognized Leona Stone Scott, a constant figure in Reunion planning for the past five years. Leona, a 1969 Oswego graduate, pledged Phi Lamb in spring 1967. She married her Beta college sweetheart, raised two sons, taught elementary school, and stayed connected to her Phi Lamb Sisters. Each year, she meets a variety of sisters for lunch or dinner in many NY locations. And for our 50th birthday celebration in 2009, Leona reached out to as many 1960s sisters as she could find, insisting that they return to celebrate this important milestone. She has continued to represent PLP on the College’s Reunion committee and this year produced 100 little black and yellow ribbons, her specialty for the past five years.  A favorite among all the sisters from the 1960s, Leona has made friends with sisters from all eras and says that doing that is the best part of being a PLP sister.

Thank you Leona for your work and your devotion to Phi Lamb.
