Enrichment and Inspiration for Beta Sigma Phi Sisters from Marilyn Ross

Achievement Band

 In honor of the Silver Anniversary of Beta Sigma Phi (1956) the International Executive Council announced the adoption of a new official insignia, the Achievement Band. There is a star to be attached to the Band for each office held and each honor bestowed. Separate stars are available for offices and honors in every degree, and in Councils.

 Special stars were created to give recognition for honors and titles, and for participation in local activities. They are specially designed, so it does take a little longer for International to fill orders on them.

The principal stars and their symbols are:

Clasped Hands (Vice President)
Key and Wreath (Ways/Means Chairman)
Cornucopia (Social Chairman)
Winged Foot (Extension Officer)
Gavel (President)
Mason Star (Parliamentarian)
Greek Column (Program Chairman)
Crook and Wreath (Service Chairman)
Parchment Scroll (Publicity Chairman)
Quill (Recording Secretary)
Bottle and Quill (Corresponding Secretary)
Key (Treasurer)

 Abbreviations are made on the stars because of their size.

 Why stars? The star is the star of friendship in Beta Sigma Phi!

 The Achievement Band is your own personal jewelry denoting your years of service and honors. Only you can wear it!

 Please refer to the Gift Catalogue in the August issue of The Torch. A complete listing of stars is included.
