Sharon shares: “I enjoy utilizing my teaching and mentoring skills with chapter officers. It has been my observation they all want to be successful…they just may need a little “coaching” and help when it comes to the “people skills” part of being a leader and learning how to listen/communicate. It is very satisfying to watch them grow their skills over a period of time and to become more confident leaders, similar to how membership in Phi Mu allowed me to increase my self-confidence and enabled me to grow as a person.”
Beth Mitchell, current Delta Eta Chapter Adviser, says: “When Sharon stepped down as Chapter Adviser, she contacted me to ask if I would replace her. Knowing how much time she devoted to Phi Mu assured me it was a great honor that she trusted me. She is the perfect example of living the creed every single day.”
