AAPA has received an NPC Programming Excellence Award for their devotion to meet specific criteria and expectations.

“AAPA is honored to receive this award from NPC in recognition of its scholarship and recruitment programs, and philanthropic activities,” said Rigby Duncan, AAPA President. “We have plans to do even more in the coming year as we celebrate 90 years of promoting the Panhellenic spirit in the South.”
