When asked about the chapter's choice to support Special Olympics, she responded: "Each year, Phi Theta Kappa assigns an 'Honors in Action' study topic. This year's study topic was 'The Culture of Competition,' and Iota Chi Chapter has chosen to support Special Olympics in their endeavors to provide athletic competitions to children and adults with disabilities."
