President- Abby Lynn Thomas

President

Hello my name is Abby Lynn Thomas, and I have the great privilege to serve as the President of Sigma Kappa! I grew up in Nashville, TN and am a Senior accounting major. I am also a student intern at Tennessee Valley Authority. I am so grateful for the opportunity of growth that Sigma Kappa has given me. The variety of personalities, interests, and backgrounds of the women in this sorority is what makes it feel like home.

Executive Vice President- Courtney Keller

Vice President of Values and Standards

Hi there! My name is Courtney Keller, and I have the greatest privilege of serving as the Vice President of Values and Standards of Sigma Kappa. I am from a small town called Lebanon, Tennessee, and I am a senior earning my degree in Child and Family Studies here at UTC. Being a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority has pushed me to pursue my dreams and to be engaged on our campus outside of Greek life. My sisters support me as I also serve on the Executive Board for our St. Jude Up Til' Dawn club on campus by attending events and showing me love in every aspect of my college career. Without the members Sigma Kappa, including our alumnae and advisors, I would not have been able to flourish in my academics, my personal life, and in my friendships. I am so blessed that my sisters see a leader in me, and I am so excited to represent this chapter in the upcoming year. I know the friendships Sigma Kappa has brought me will continue throughout the rest of my life!

I am so thankful for my sisters and UTC! Go Mocs!

VP of New Member Education- Emma Darnell

Vice President of New Member Education

Hello! My name is Emma Darnell, and I have the honor of serving as the Vice President of New Member Education for Sigma Kappa! I am currently a Senior studying Business Management. I was born and raised in Summertown, TN, and joined Sigma Kappa hoping to find a group of girls to help fill the void of the big family and tight-knit friend group that I left at home. Sigma Kappa has filled that void and more. My sisters are constantly pushing me out of my comfort zone to be the best that I can be, and for that I am forever grateful. Sigma Kappa has given me many opportunities to give back to this beautiful city I call home. I look forward to sharing my love for Sigma Kappa with the new members that will join our sisterhood this year and while also helping them find their home here at UTC.

VP of Alumnae Relations- Hensley Warren

Vice President of Alumane Relations

Hi everyone! My name is Hensley Warren and I have the great privilege of serving as Theta Phi's Vice President of Alumnae Relations. I am a Criminal Justice major and hoping to pursue a career in criminal law after graduation. I was born and raised in Nashville, TN. Coming from a very close and tight knit family, I chose to go Greek in hopes that I could find my "home away from home." Sigma Kappa very quickly became exactly that for me and I couldn't be more blessed to be a part of something so amazing. Sigma Kappa has opened doors for me I never thought would be possible and I will forever be thankful to have joined this sisterhood.

VP of Finance- Karlee Voelp

Vice President of Finance

Hi! My name is Karlee Voelp and I am so excited to be serving Theta Phi as Vice President of Finance. I am currently a sophomore accounting major at UTC and I am from Ooltewah, TN. Since I have grown up in the Chattanooga area my whole life, I knew I needed a way to meet new people and branch out when I decided to stay in town for school. From day one, Sigma Kappa has been my little home away from home. I have never considered myself to be much of a leader or an outgoing person, but my sisters have truly encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and become the best version of myself in the past 2 years. I have already gained so many experiences and life long friends from Sigma Kappa and I am excited to represent this chapter for the next year.

VP of Scholarship- Whitney Lee

Vice President of Academic Excellence

Hello! My name is Whitney Lee, and I have the privilege of serving as the Vice President of Academic Excellence for Sigma Kappa. I was born and raised in Johnson City, Tennessee. I am majoring in business finance with hopes to get the CFA certification. I have an older sister that I am very close with and when joining Sigma Kappa I was hoping to find a relationship like that. I am so happy to say that I have found multiple relationships like that. Sigma Kappa has easily been one of the biggest blessings in my life thus far. Since joining, I have personally grown immensely. In high school, I would have never seen myself as the leader I am now thanks to the support of my sisters. I am so excited to pursue this leadership role and continue to support my sisters just as they have supported me.

VP of Philanthrophic Services- Katie Martin

I am grateful and excited to continue to serve this year in raising awareness for our five national philanthropies and bettering the community in the Chattanooga area. Sigma Kappa has made a major impact on me and as the VPPS, I hope to help Sigma Kappa do the same for others!

VP of Communications- Sadie Arbuthnot

VP of Communications

Hello! My name is Sadie Arbuthnot, and I have the privilege of serving as the Vice President of Communications for the Theta Phi Chapter of Sigma Kappa. I am currently a junior studying nursing. I was born in Maryland, but lived in Delaware for 6 years before moving to Athens, TN. Growing up with four brothers, I joined Sigma Kappa hoping to find the closeness and special bond so many of my friends have with their sisters. However, I never could have imagined I would find just that, and so much more. Sigma Kappa has brought me service pursuits, sisterhood activities, social involvement within the Greek community and on campus, and many leadership opportunities. Sigma Kappa has shaped me into the woman I am today, and I couldn't be more proud to represent this organization.
