When Sara Connell’s family received the phone call while they were on vacation that the family home was engulfed in flames, it changed her life forever. Thankfully, there was no one home at the time and their lives were spared, but the contents of their home were completely ravaged by smoke and fire. Sara’s family had to redirect all of their resources into rebuilding their home and replacing their day to day necessities and she needed a helping hand to cover her tuition at Jacksonville State University.
“Phi Mu Foundation came to my aid with a grant from the Betty Nell Wilkinson Emergency Fund when I needed it the most. After my family lost our home in a fire, my parents had no idea how they’d pay for my schooling. Because of Ms. Betty’s generosity, I didn’t have to take a semester off and was able to continue to be involved with the Kappa Sigma Chapter. I am so thankful to her and to be a part of an organization that generously gives back to sister in need. This is what sisterhood is all about.”
