Congratulations to the 2020-2021 Alpha Chi Omega of the Year, Stephanie Lower!

Stephanie (Muschall) Lower was initiated in 2009 to the Zeta Sigma chapter at Missouri State in Springfield, MO. She joined Mu Mu in 2015 and then the Mu Mu board in 2016.

In addition to her local service to Mu Mu, she has served as a Leadership Academy facilitator, presented the REPRESENT leadership program at a number of collegiate chapters, and serves in an advisory role for both Zeta Sigma and Phi chapters. She served as a Page at the 2012 Alpha Chi Omega convention in St Louis and as a Convention Reporter in 2014 in Palm Desert.

After her full-time job, she devotes countless hours every month to make sure our newsletters and emails are perfect. These go out to over 1200 local sisters. Her top notch technical skills have taken our monthly communication to a new level, both in design and content. She also redesigned and maintains our local website. She is always supporting Mu Mu’s fundraising efforts by donating time and profits from her Pampered Chef sales at our annual March meeting and donates items to our annual Silence the Violence silent auction each year. Stephanie currently resides in Grain Valley, MO with her husband, Kory, and recently started a new custom sugar cookie business called Holly Court Cookies.
