Miss America 2009 Katie Stam will bring her national speaking tour promoting the Miss America organization and her personal platform of community service to Wichita State as part of the Delta Gamma Lectureship Series at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 5015 E. 29th St. N.
Admission is free.
Stam's presentation is titled "Passion for Service: Promoting Community Service and Involvement."
An aspiring news anchor, Stam also is a goodwill ambassador for the Miss America organization's national platform partner, Children's Miracle Network. In this role, she travels the country raising awareness about CMN and visiting children's hospitals across North America.
The Delta Gamma chapter at WSU is one of 11 chapters nationwide that holds the prestigious lectureship series funded by Akron Alumna Dorothy Garrett Martin. Martin donated funds for matching grants of $50,000 to begin a lectureship in values and ethics.
In 1994, the WSU chapter met the challenge of raising $50,000. The money was matched and placed in an endowed fund through the WSU Foundation. Interest earned from the fund pays for the lecture series.
