Green chosen for Alpha Delta Pi internship

When Casey Green hung up the phone, she was crying.

The Austin Peay State University senior and Dickson County native had just learned that she was among only nine young women from across the country to receive a coveted internship at the Alpha Delta Pi Sororitys national headquarters in Atlanta, Ga.

Of course I cried because I was so excited that I was going to get to live at headquarters for two months and learn more about the sorority that has given me so much already, she said.

The Austin Peay State University senior and Dickson County native had just learned that she was among only nine young women from across the country to receive a coveted internship at the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority's national headquarters in Atlanta, Ga.

“Of course I cried because I was so excited that I was going to get to live at headquarters for two months and learn more about the sorority that has given me so much already,” she said.

Green credits Alpha Delta Pi with opening up a world of leadership and service opportunities to her during her time at APSU. That's why she applied for the sorority's internship program, but she knew the competition would be tough for one of the few positions.

“I applied feeling like I wasn't going to get it,” she said.

Green, however, impressed sorority officials with her essay and her telephone interview. She ended up beating out a record number of applicants from across the country for the job.

At the end of this month, she and the eight other interns will move into small bedrooms at the headquarters' building in Atlanta, where throughout June and into July, they'll take active roles in some of the behind-the-scenes workings of their organization.

“In this short period, I hope to learn more about my sorority and all the leadership opportunities that it has to offer,” Green said. “After all, I always refer to our motto, ‘We Live for Each Other.'”

Alpha Delta Pi is a social sorority that focuses on scholarship, sisterhood and service. The organization, with chapters at colleges and universities nationwide, is a major supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which includes the Ronald McDonald House and Camp Rainbow.
