Alpha Omicron Pi’s Xi Chapter members recently elected Phillips Murrah Attorney Kendra M. Norman to serve as Chapter Adviser for the sorority’s University of Oklahoma house.
Chapter Adviser is elected annually and advises the Chapter President, the Leader’s Council—which consists of women elected as leaders of the chapter—as well as the chapter as a whole, which is made up of over 250 women.
“I serve as a resource, a role model, and a coach to the chapter and its members,” Norman said. “I have the privilege of working one-on-one with the amazing women of Xi Chapter and have gotten to watch them grow as leaders, achieve their goals, and become professionals, and I am so proud to call each one of them my sisters.”
The Chapter Adviser also serves as the chairman of the chapter’s Alumnae Advisory Committee, comprised of alumnae who mentor the women on the Leader’s Council individually. Norman has served on the committee for about five years in various leadership roles.
“Alpha Omicron Pi’s motto is ‘Inspire Ambition,’ and I truly take that to heart as I practice law at Phillips Murrah P.C. and volunteer with Xi Chapter of AOII,” she said. “I find that being a collegiate member and now an alumna member of AOII has been an empowering experience, and it is amazing to see what women can do when they work together and build each other up.
“I am thrilled to be able to take on this new challenge and to have this opportunity to work side by side with the women of Xi Chapter as well as Inspire Ambition through my service.”
Norman represents individuals and businesses in a broad range of transactional matters in the Firm’s downtown Oklahoma City office.
