Meet the Sisters
The sisters of the Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta pride themselves in widespread campus and community involvement, while maintaining their role as students at Cornell University. Our members span all seven undergraduate colleges, participate in over a hundred unique extracurricular activities, and take the time to give back through various philanthropic efforts. On this page, we will have a Sister Spotlight to honor one of our many extraordinary members. Meet Ingrid Nunez, our current Spotlight!
Ingrid is a graduate from the School of Hotel Administration here at Cornell. Four years ago, Ingrid was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. As a non-smoker, Ingrid was left quite shocked, but never gave up and soon teamed up with the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and Jill’s Legacy. On September 25, 2011, Ingrid, along with her Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, organized the first annual Jog for Jill in Honor of Ingrid Nunez at Cornell. Since that first run, Ingrid has raised over $100,000. Today, Ingrid is still fighting and has made a lot of progress. We love you, Ingrid!
