Q&A with Peg Steffen Sant'Ambrogio

Indiana Epsilon Peg Steffen Sant'Ambrogio

Q: How are you currently active in Pi Phi?
PSS: Currently, I’m Co-Chair of the St. Louis Alumnae Club’s Book Interest Group and also serve on their Nominating Committee. I formerly wrote and mailed the quarterly newsletter and after that was President of the club.

Q: You are also active at Sign of the Arrow. What role do you play there?
PSS: Sign of the Arrow is a renowned needlepoint and gift shop owned and operated by the St. Louis Alumnae Club. The shop is run almost solely by volunteers and has been in business since 1966. I help as a sales volunteer and previously served in several leadership roles on the board. I love Sign of the Arrow not only because of its Pi Phi roots, but because all of our proceeds benefit local charities, including Pi Beta Phi Foundation.

Q: Why do you give back to Pi Beta Phi Foundation?
PSS: When I was a collegian in the 1950s, there was little financial aid available for female students. I was fortunate to be one of five recipients of the largest scholarship given to women at DePauw University. I was extremely grateful to be awarded this scholarship. Thus, I’ve always felt that supporting scholarship investments in women should be part of my “pay it forward” philanthropy goals, both for Pi Phi Foundation and DePauw University. 

Q: The Foundation’s Emma Harper Turner Fund is also important to you. Why?
PSS: One of our Pi Phi songs has the lyric, “Her arms extending in friendship unending, Pi Phi holds out to you.” I believe the Emma Harper Turner Fund, which provides financial assistance to Pi Phis in need, put these lyrics into concrete practice. The fund helps our sisters when they have nowhere else to turn. I’m proud to be a part of something so positive and impactful.

Q: What do you hope for future generations of Pi Phi leaders, including current collegians and the newly graduated?
PSS: I hope young Pi Phis will continue to value our Fraternity’s ideals. Our heritage of courage, integrity, kindness toward others, and the joy of pursuing knowledge can be a steady compass as these women move through future chapters of their lives. As more and more women take leadership roles in government, business, and academia, I hope our young Pi Phis will be in the forefront of this 21st century trend and infuse our Pi Phi ideals into their positions.
