    I have already left a message with Senator Richard Shelby's office to support this ambitious initiative.I will encourage other to do likewise.I suggest that the that this message be sent to all the College & University Greek Organizations both the undergradutes and graduates.

    Thank you, Gloria. We'll see what we can do. This program needs — and deserves — all the support it can get. Thanks for your leadership.

    I will contact Sen Harkin from Iowa on Monday. He wrote a support letter for our planning year grant that we just submitted and I will remind him that this will only benefit us if he votes to fund the grants to carryout the plans.
