A Note from Our President
Hello and welcome to our website!
My name is Taryn Kosinski, I’m a junior studying public relations and writing here at James Madison University, and I am the CEO of our chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. Eta Rho is one of 143 active chapters of Theta across the United States and Canada (with two new establishments on the way). As Theta women, we strive to provide guidance to sisters throughout their lives both in college and as alumnae. Our sisters at JMU are well-rounded, competitive, authentic women who support each other in good times and bad.
Each year our chapter raises money for our International Philanthropy and Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA. CASA is an organization that supports and promotes advocates for abused or neglected children going through the foster care system. Volunteers are trained and paired with a child and act as a support system and an advocate for that child in court when decisions are being made about the child’s future. At Eta Rho, we feel passionately about making an impact on children who have been overlooked, and we seek to raise thousands of dollars each year to donate to our local CASA. Our annual philanthropy events include our Fall Fest, Influential Women’s Tea and a dodge ball tournament.
In my time in Theta, my sisters have seen things in me that I had never seen in myself. Every day I am surrounded by women who inspire, motivate, and encourage me to be my best self. I am honored to serve as CEO and I hope to help our chapter continue to grow and improve in 2017.
