About Sue Kay and the Intern Program
Sue Kay was the Fraternity’s office manager from 1974 until her death in 2011. During her 37 years of service, her skills were held in the highest esteem. Every member who attended a convention met Sue, because she conducted the registration process. Sue loved Sigma Tau Gamma and became friends with many brothers through the years.
Sue left a small bequest to the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation, Inc. Many brothers made memorial contributions in her honor. Her brother Homer Kay and wife Becky made a significant donation and pledge in honor of Sue.
The Trustees of the Foundation voted to place these donations in a designated fund, the Sue Kay Fund, to underwrite the travel, lodging and registration costs for the annual recipient of the internship. They reasoned that Sue would find this program flattering since she so enjoyed the conventions, particularly the annual renewal of her many Sigma Tau Gamma friendships.
