Student's art featured on holiday greeting University of South Dakota student Michelle Adrian is the recipient of the Pi Beta Phi 2004-2005 Holiday Scholarship Award, chosen through a contest to design the national fraternity's holiday card.
The Pi Beta Phi Foundation's Holiday Scholarship Program raises money throughout the holiday season to fund Pi Beta Phi scholarships. Instead of mailing holiday cards to each other, members and alumni of Pi Beta Phi send contributions to the foundation equal to what they would have spent on cards and postage. As donors, their names appear on the holiday card designed by Adrian that is sent to current and former grand council members and foundation trustees, Arrowmont Board of Governors, appointed officers, directors, foundation and fraternity committee members, graduate consultants, foundation and fraternity staff and friends of the program.
Adrian's design will be the symbol of this year's national holiday fund-raising efforts.
Adrian is in her fourth year at USD, working towards a degree in contemporary media and journalism with an emphasis in advertising and a minor in art. She is involved in Pi Beta Phi sorority, Student Ambassadors, and The Volante. She is the daughter of Nancy Adrian of Sioux Falls.
