Sister Scholastica Most Committed Sponsor Award
The Sister Scholastica Most Committed Sponsor Award was created in 1994 at the suggestion of the student delegates at the National Convention, who wanted to create another award to honor outstanding sponsors of Mu Alpha Theta chapters. The award is named after Sister Scholastica, who was a dedicated sponsor from 1972 and a fixture at the National Conventions, until her retirement. Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, the winner of the Sister Scholastica Award will receive a $2,000 cash prize and a $1,000 grant for their chapter.
