Kimberly Fiock is now a senior at UT Dallas and the Service and Philanthropy Director of our chapter. Kimberly is psychology and neuroscience double major and has by far one of the most giving hearts. Kimberly was chosen the Leading Woman of the Month for March due to her recent accomplishments and passion for service.
Kimberly's dedication to the UT Dallas community is evident by her participation in a variety of activities, including service, leadership, and academics. Last year, she was selected as a site leader for one of the 10 Alternative Spring Break trips from a pool of more than 50 applicants; during her time on ASB, Kimberly led a group of 12 students through their week of service with Habitat for Humanity in Mississippi, where they renovated 4 house by painting, crafting windows, building a wheelchair ramp, and fixing mulitiple tool sheds. This year, Kimberly served as a site leader again, as she led a team of 11 students to Paradise, Texas to serve as counselors at Camp Summit, a barrier-free camp experience for individuals with disabilities from ages 6-99. Through this experience, she not only served as a leader for her UT Dallas team but served as a leader for her cabin by helping individuals participate in daily camp activities like horseback riding, archery, arts and crafts, and natural exploration. In her spare time, Kimberly involves herself in multiple organizations and honor societies, including the National Society for Leadership and Success, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and the Greek honor society Order of Omega. She previously served as the Vice President of Events for the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and will be the new Executive Vice President this fall. Kimberly will also be the new secretary for Order of Omega. Last year, she founded and served as the President of the UT Dallas chapter of Camp Kesem, a national non-profit organization designed to help children through and beyond their parent's cancer. During the summer, she served as an AmeriCORPS Volunteer in Service to America, or VISTA, in conjunction with the Texas Hunger Initiative and the Texas Department of Agriculture to improve access to free summer meals for children in the City of Austin. Kimberly volunteered over 265 hours of her time last year, earning her the Dean's Service Milestone Recognition from UT Dallas and the Presidential Service Award from the President of the United States. Recently, she was awarded the Service Pillar by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority life and was nominated for the Student Leadership Program's Community Service Award. When she isn't serving her community or being a leader in the chapter, Kimberly participates in neuroplasticity reserach and is in the process of publishing her first scientific paper as first author. She hopes to study medicinal advancements for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease after graduation. She currently works as a Career Peer Educator on campus and plans to become a CASA this fall.
Kimberly leads by example and pushes her sisters to serve for the greater good. Our chapter is beyond pleased with her being the Service and Philanthropy Director of our chapter.
