AXO of the Year

Congratulations to the 2019-2020 Alpha Chi Omega of the Year, Janice Ryan!

Janice Ryan

Janice has been a loyal member for over 50 years, serving as President of Mu Mu and a Province Collegiate Chair. She rallies her sisters to attend events, plans an annual reunion at various locations across the country for members of her pledge class, and comes to Founders’ Day each year. During her tenure as Mu Mu President, the Ronald McDonald house of KCK was a recipient of the Santa House proceeds. In 1980, a $10,000 goal was achieved to have one of the rooms named in Mu Mu’s honor. In addition to serving Alpha Chi, she is a sustaining member of the Wyandotte/Johnson County Junior League and spent many years going to meetings and working on committees, including the Cotillion. For several years, she was instrumental in working and organizing fundraising events for Catholic Charities. She is a loyal parish volunteer for St. Patrick’s Church and School of Wyandotte County and enjoyed singing in the choir. Her most rewarding role is being a mother and a grandmother of 5, which includes 1 granddaughter and two set of twin boys.
