Spring Awards Luncheon
Each May the AAPA announces and honors the scholarship recipients at its Spring Scholarship Luncheon, an elegant event usually held at a country club or top hotel. Collegiate and alumnae members of NPC groups, families and friends, and of course the award recipients are invited to attend. The luncheon begins with a procession of past AAPA presidents, acknowledging their contributions to Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic.
