Lisa Torguson, Minnesota, serves Tri Delta’s Foundation as the undergraduate scholarship committee chair.
Previously, she volunteered as alumnae chapter president for her local chapter. When she’s not serving Tri Delta, Lisa is a graduate gemologist who works as a business strategist for a jewelry company. She and her husband of 31 years have two daughters and a golden retriever.
Here’s what Lisa had to share about the importance of volunteering and giving back to our sisterhood:
What made you want to volunteer with Tri Delta?
I enjoy working with women of all ages and backgrounds. Volunteering with Tri Delta has given me the flexibility to step up and take on volunteer positions when I had the time to give. With many positions and areas to volunteer, there is always something interesting to do and learn.
What has been your favorite experience as a volunteer?
My favorite experience is calling the scholarship award winners. Their joy and excitement inspires me.
What skills has your volunteer role helped you develop?
Volunteering has made me very focused on timelines to efficiently and effectively complete projects.
Why has it been important to support the work of Tri Delta’s Foundation as a volunteer?
I love helping the Foundation because it helps Tri Delta women through all of their life. The Foundation funds leadership programs within the collegiate chapters, acknowledges members’ strengths through undergraduate and graduate scholarships, and helps members with needs-based grants when times are tough.
