Getting to Know the Fraternity Staff

Savannah Parramore, KB Collegiate Chapter Specialist

This summer, the Phi Mu Fraternity Member Services team was restructured to meet the ever-evolving needs of our collegiate chapters. The Collegiate Chapter Specialist position was developed to provide more direct staff support to collegiate chapters. Savannah Parramore, KB (Valdosta State University), is one of eight women serving in this role.

See below to learn more about Savannah and her role as Collegiate Chapter Specialist.

What do you do as a Collegiate Chapter Specialist?

As a Collegiate Chapter Specialist, I serve as an organizational leader for my designated chapters and the volunteer teams. In this role, I provide direct support from the HQ to ensure chapter growth and development. I also assist in Phi Mu events including the Phi Mu Officer Academy, Chapter Consultant Training, Officer Training and National Convention.

What do you love most about your job?

I love having the opportunity to be a mentor to the chapter officers I work with. I also enjoy being able to network and build relationships with all Phi Mu members, alumnae and HQ staff.

What’s your favorite collegiate Phi Mu memory?

My favorite memory in Phi Mu as a collegian was serving as the Panhellenic Public Relations Chairman my senior year. During that time, I was able to meet so many different and incredible women in the Panhellenic community. As a result of holding that role, I was also given the opportunity to travel and participate in leadership conferences. That experience and all of that training has helped me in my job as a CCS. 

As a College Panhellenic Public Relations Chairman, Savannah was able to attend many leadership conferences, including SEPC in Atlanta.

Do you have a favorite TV show or movie?

It’s so hard to pick just one favorite movie or show. However, right now I am loving the show “90 Day Fiancé” and once I catch up on those episodes, I will jump over to Disney+ and throw on a Disney movie classic for comfort. 

Do you have a favorite quote or motto?

“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so get on your way!” -Dr. Seuss 

I really love this quote because it aligns with my personal values.

If you could choose to have dinner with anyone, who would it be and why?

If I could choose anyone to have dinner with it would be my grandfather, better known as “Poppop.” He passed away in 2009 and I miss him so much. He lived in Daytona, Florida, and when I was growing up, my family and I would visit him every holiday and summer. Each time we were there, he would take my family out to eat at our favorite restaurant, Peach Valley Cafe. If I had the opportunity to see him again, I would treat him to a dinner at Peach Valley Cafe and tell him all about my life today.
