Sorority Inducts 90-Year-Old Woman


At Washburn University in 1941, Bertie McConnell wanted to join Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, but before she could pledge World War II broke out and she dropped out to work in an ammunitions factory. Recently her daughter contacted the sorority hoping to get a card for McConnell’s 90th birthday, but instead the sisters surprised her by inducting her as an honorary member. McConnell said she was overwhelmed by the students’ generosity adding, “I finally made it.” The sisters are about to get an even bigger surprise when McConnell shows up to the next keg party.
