Celebrating Evelyn Peters Kyle

 

 

Loyalty Ties

 

Often in our busy lives
We somehow fail to realize
What different ways we might have gone,
If Pi Phi hadn’t come along.

Our pledgeship taught us many things
That work together always brings.
We learned our past and how we grew,
And what good scholarship could do.

 

As collegians it opened up a door
That showed that life holds so much more;
That friends do last throughout the years,
And help when a cloudy sky appears.

 

And then on graduation day
We felt that time had slipped away,
A Pi Phi girl had just become
A “Has Been” and new Alum.

 

But once again a door was wide,
And friends to welcome just inside;
And service of another kind
To satisfy both heart and mind.

 

From pledge to Golden Arrow year,
These loyal ties are always near,
So think what your life might have been,
If Pi Phi hadn’t said, “Come in!”

 

—Evelyn Peters Kyle 1966

 


Evelyn Peters Kyle, Illinois Alpha, was a very special member of Pi Beta Phi. Evelyn demonstrated her love for her Fraternity through her numerous volunteer roles and her treasured words. As Poet Laureate, Evelyn conveyed her pride and joy for our sisterhood through her poems, and she exemplified the values of Pi Beta Phi. Evelyn's words and actions continue to inspire generations of Pi Phis.

Evelyn and her husband, Stan, were also loyal Foundation donors and long-time members of the Foundation’s planned giving society. When Evelyn passed away in 2009, the bulk of her estate was gifted to Foundation.

The Foundation created the Evelyn Peters Kyle Society to recognize donors who support the Foundation with gifts totaling $1,000 or more each fiscal year. Like Evelyn, members of the EPK Society have a deep commitment to the future of Pi Beta Phi.

Members of the Evelyn Peters Kyle Society receive special benefits, including:

  • An invitation to the May Lansfield Keller Breakfast at convention
  • An invitation to Trustee receptions hosted throughout the year
  • A copy of the quarterly publication, the Evelyn Peters Kyle Society Bulletin.

March is Evelyn's birthday month, and the Foundation's will be celebrating her legacy and members of the Evelyn Peters Kyle Society all monthlong on Facebook!

For more information about the Evelyn Peters Kyle Society, please contact Development Director Jenny Miller Pratt at jpratt@pibetaphi.org or (636) 256-1357.
