Hello! My name is Rachel Greene and I am honored to be serving as the President of the Beta Epsilon chapter of Tri Sigma. I am from Oak Lawn, IL and I am a sophomore Communication major with an Event Planning minor. Outside of Tri Sigma, I am involved in Student Government Association (Chief of Staff), University Union Board (Director of Traditions and Collaborations), and Rockython (Director of Activities). Last year, I served as Tri Sigma's Education Director. When I arrived at WIU, I knew I wanted to go through formal recruitment immediately. Almost immediately upon meeting women in this chapter, I knew this was the place I would call home. I remember running home to Tri Sigma like it was yesterday and can confidently say that it was the best decision I ever made. Almost 2 years later, joining this sorority has changed me as a person and has shaped me into the leader I am today. I look forward to leading this organization with love and leaving my mark on Beta Epsilon.

Hello everyone! My name is Destinee Jones and I am honored to be serving as this year’s Vice President of Operations. I am currently a sophomore, majoring in Ag business and minoring in marketing. Along with being actively involved in Tri Sigma, I also serve as a crew member for Western Illinois University’s Love Your Melon Campus Crew. In the past I have also held the positions of Alumnae Relations and Founder’s Day Chairman for Tri Sigma. My hometown is Chandlerville, Illinois where I attended school at A-C Central High School and was a cheerleader at PORTA High School. I also was involved in many clubs and danced at On Broadway Dance Company in Astoria, Illinois. After graduating college, I plan to pursue a career in agriculture or business. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, watching movies, and shopping. Coming into college I was very homesick, but I had always wanted to be involved in Greek life. I decided to go through formal recruitment my first semester of college and little did I know it would have such an impact on my life. I have been gifted with many leadership opportunities, which have built my confidence, improved my speaking skills, and increased my professionalism. Tri Sigma has become my home away from home. I have not only made lifelong friendships but also have been given an incredible support system. I know that my sisters will always be here for me no matter the circumstance, and for that I’m forever grateful. Tri Sigma has truly helped shape me into the woman I am today. I can honestly say that I would not be the woman I am today without this amazing chapter. With that, I am very excited to serve on officer board this year and I cannot wait to see what this year brings.
Hi everyone! My name is Bailey Maroon and I am honored to serve as this years Treasurer. I have many plans and ideas for the Beta Epsilon chapter and cannot wait to make them happen. I am currently a sophomore at Western Illinois University and a nursing major. I am from a small town in southern Illinois, Pocahontas. I attended high school at Greenville High School where I was involved in extracurricular activities such as volleyball and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). After graduating, I plan to work in the ICU/critical care units for 2 years and then pursue my dream of becoming a nurse anesthetist. I wanted to transfer when I first got to Western because I am 3.5 hours away from home and it was hard. My mom pushed me to go through formal recruitment and I am so glad I found my home in Tri Sigma. Tri Sigma has taught me to come out of my comfort zone and how to become a strong leader. There are so many leadership opportunities and I cannot wait to see where these next few years of being in Tri Sigma leads me. Without Tri Sigma, I would have transferred home and not have the incredible lifelong friendships I know I have found within my sisters. I will forever be thankful for the big white house on the hill and all of the memories I have made with my sisters. I am extremely proud to be a member of Tri Sigma and cannot wait to see what this year of being treasurer has to offer me.
Hey everyone! My name is Mary Kilbourne and I’m so excited to be the 2020 recruitment Director for Tri Sigma. I am currently a junior at Western Illinois University double majoring in LEJA and Communication. I am originally from Carpentersville and I graduated from Hampshire High school. At my time here at Western, I have had the chance to hold multiple positions within Sigmas such as Social chair, Sisterhood and being an Arc Leader. I have so many ideas I can bring to the table, and will do everything I can in this position to recruit quality women to our chapter. Tri Sigma has given me so many opportunities and has taught me what it means to be a leader. I never knew what I was capable of until i joined Tri Sigma. I never thought I was the kind of girl who would join a sorority but I’m glad I did because it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Hello everyone! My name is Amanda Wandachowicz and I’m very excited to be this year’s chapter secretary! I am currently a sophomore studying forensic chemistry at Western. I’m from Palos Heights, IL and am enjoying getting more involved in Macomb. Along with Tri Sigma, I help run the Western Courier, the student newspaper on campus. Positions I have held for Tri Sigma in the past include Honor Council goals coordinator and chair, and Efficiency Chair. In high school, I was involved in cheerleading and was on the golf team along with being a member of the National Honors Society.

My name is Madison Kinsel! I am a junior who transferred here from Lincoln land community college in Springfield, Illinois. I am studying to become a speech pathology, where I would like to work in a hospital. I decided to join Greek life because I have always been apart of an organization of some sort. In high school, I was on the volleyball and swim team, and was co captain of the poms squad. I was a member of the national art honors society, and treasurer of art club, and was a swim coach for special olympics. Being apart of Tri Sigma has given me so many opportunities I never thought I would have. I am and will always be grateful for my sisters who push me to be the best version of myself, and for Tri Sigma for being the place where I can grow to be my best self.
