Nominate a Pi Phi for their professional achievement

The Carolyn Helman Lichtenberg Crest Award recognizes distinguished Pi Phi alumnae who positively impact their communities through professional and volunteer service. The award honors Ohio Alpha Carolyn Helman Lichtenberg — a visionary leader for Pi Beta Phi whose efforts can still be felt throughout the Fraternity. To celebrate the launch of our 2020 nominations, we're highlighting last year's winners of the Carolyn Helman Lichtenberg Crest Award for Professional Achievement. 

Dr. Katherine Stasiak Hankins, Mississippi Beta

Katherine’s resume includes Board Certification and medical practice in three different areas: Obstetrics/ Gynecology, Family Practice and Psychiatry. Her career has been a progression of serving different people with unique medical needs; however, her work in collegiate mental health is impressive and impactful. She recently served at the University of Nebraska at Omaha as a psychiatrist while maintaining a private practice, which continues today. Katherine is an experienced speaker on college campuses, presenting material on a variety of relevant medical topics with special consideration given to mental health. While her professional and volunteer achievements are extensive, her dedication to following her medical passion into an area that serves collegians is truly outstanding.
