Mary Sterling Barlow, Beta Mu-Bowling Green's (left) award was presented at the St. Louis Founders Day in March 2018 by Shannon Winters Goodson, Gamma Beta-Tulsa (right), Region 5 Alumnae Specialist.

Mary has been a consistent Fraternity volunteer for several decades, serving in roles that vary from alumnae president to her current role as National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) 2nd Alternate Delegate.

She also worked at Executive Offices, most notably as executive director of the Fraternity from 2007-2011. (While Mary’s contributions to the Fraternity were notable while she was on staff, it’s important to note that employment with Executive Offices does not contribute to years of service for the Cable Award.)

Katie Seuntjens, Gamma Iota-Depauw, who lead the application for Mary said, “I submitted Mary Barlow for a Cable Award because she really embodies what it means to be a Delta Gamma. She's served in so many capacities and in each position she serves with compassion, grace and sisterhood.”


The Cable Award – The Cable Award recognizes alumnae who, through years of serving Delta Gamma, have evidenced unusual loyalty and devotion far beyond normal alumnae participation. You can find Cable Award instructions here
