Tori Sones has served as the alumna advisor for Kappa Chapter for the past nine years. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2008 with a degree in business administration and emphasis in marketing and advertising, Tori wanted to find a way to give back to the organization that had shaped her college experience.
“During my time in the chapter I made some of my best friends and was able to take on numerous leadership positions which really helped me grow as a person. With such a wonderful collegiate experience, I wanted to be sure that I gave back to the organization that had shaped those four years of my life.” One factor she says that influenced her decision was the relationship she had built with her own chapter advisors. “Because of the connection I had made with them, I had the courage and desire to learn from them and hopefully influence and assist younger members in the same way.”
As alumna advisor, Tori enjoys the opportunity to build relationships with college women, mentoring them and helping them navigate the challenges that come with being a modern-day college student. “Watching young women step into leadership roles and grow in confidence
and understanding of what is expected of not only themselves but the chapter as a whole is a very rewarding experience.”
Tori says she also enjoys the relationships she’s been able to foster with her fellow advisors and volunteer support team. “The advisors and support team that I work with have become a strong sounding board and great confidants, and my time spent as a volunteer for this chapter would not be the same without them.”
