Check out the great article about our Beta Gamma chapter:
Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority, Inc. is pleased to announce its 2017 Woman of the Year, Viney Mosley, who is the president and co-founder of Levi’s Children’s Charity located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
With the sudden death of Levi, her three-year-old grandson, Mosley was inspired to co-found Levi’s Children’s Charity. Levi’s Children’s Charity is a charitable-giving organization supporting projects and efforts restoring hope, happiness and health to children and families. Levi’s Children’s Charity also established fundraising opportunities to build an accessible outdoor nature inspired playground called Levi’s Adventure Trail. For more information visit www.levisadventuretrail.com.
Another key component of Mosley’s focus that the sorority hopes to support is to increase awareness of the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC). The SUDC Foundation’s goal is to prevent this unspeakable tragedy by funding research to hopefully allow future generations of children and parents a preventative cure. By endorsing the efforts of the SUDC Foundation, Viney hopes to promote public knowledge during the national SUDC Awareness Month in March 2017.
Gamma Sigma Sigma recognizes a woman of local or national prominence who has made a difference in her community during the year of its national convention. The Woman of the Year is someone that has worked to improve the community around her by either creating a program or working over and above within a program to make a difference in either her local community or the national landscape.
Mosley will be recognized July 7-8, 2017 at Gamma Sigma Sigma’s National Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. With this award, the organization will bestow National Honorary Membership to Mosley and provide a minimum $2,000 donation to Levi’s Children’s Charity.

The winter holiday season is upon us! I cannot believe that the biennium is almost over. The previous year has been such a great experience of learning, growing, and collaboration for myself and I would like to thank all the members for that. I have had the pleasure of meeting members at conferences, working with members on committees, and sharing knowledge with collegiate and alumni members. As I reflect on the last year, I find myself feeling truly blessed.
For the last 6 months of the biennium, I have such great hopes for our organization. I would love to see us grow and foster leadership, traverse new boundaries, and serve communities with unique and special service projects. Even though this is a busy time of year, my hope is that everyone will be able to take a minute and enjoy their family and friends. Cannot wait to see everyone in 2017!
Jennifer Gentry, National President
