Kye's Story

Indiana Epsilon Kye T. Hawkins

“I am grateful to Pi Beta Phi Foundation for giving me the opportunity to pursue my passion of education reform,” Indiana Epsilon Kye Hawkins said.

Kye received the Academic Continuing Education (ACE ) Scholarship from Pi Beta Phi Foundation for the 2011-12 academic year. She currently attends the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign pursuing her master’s degree in Education Policy, Organization and Leadership.

Throughout her collegiate experience at DePauw University and in the Indiana Epsilon chapter, Kye excelled at her courses, in her part-time job as senior counselor in the admission office and as Chapter President. “A large part of my educational experience has been outside the classroom. Some of my best and most challenging experiences have been through Pi Phi,” she said. “I learned more about balance, time management, delegation and above all, staying true to the mission.”

Kye continues to learn outside of the classroom as she serves on the Illinois Zeta chapter Alumnae Advisory Committee and on the executive board of the Champaign-Urbana Alumnae Organization. “The most meaningful part of my experience with Pi Beta Phi is the opportunity to learn and work with intelligent and creative women. I am always so impressed with the women that I meet through my work with Pi Phi.”

In the future, Kye hopes to help and guide young students overcome adversity within the education system. “I have a lot to learn before I tackle the problems that our education system faces.”

Kye is grateful to the Foundation and its supporters. “I am lucky enough to be able to say with confidence that the friends I made through Pi Phi will continue to inspire and support me the rest of my life. Thank you for investing in me.”
