Hello! My name is Cannon Roe, and I am honored to represent Alpha Delta Pi in this year’s Miss Greek 2016. I am from Bellevue, Washington, where I graduated from Bellevue High School as a 4.0 Valedictorian and AP Scholar with Distinction. In high school I was in involved with many activities, including DECA, which helped me to find my passion for business. I will be pursuing this interest as a Freshman Direct student in the Foster School of Business here at the University of Washington.
For me, Miss Greek is more than just an activity or competition—it is a commitment to support a cause that affects me on a personal level. A fellow Bellevue High School alum was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor during his senior year, and passed away shortly after. Throughout my high school career I participated in an annual fundraiser to honor him and remember the loss our community suffered at the hands of cancer. Both of my grandmothers have been diagnosed with cancer—fortunately one is still with me today. I have seen the effects of cancer, and I know firsthand how important it is for its survivors to be able to live their lives to the fullest—which, thanks to College for Cancer, includes getting a college education.
Please donate to my Miss Greek campaign benefitting College for Cancer. With my passion for the cause, business-oriented skill set, the encouragement from Delta Tau Delta and my Alpha Delta Pi sisters, and, most importantly, YOUR help and support, I have no doubt that I can reach my goal of raising $10,000! My college experience has already been unforgettable, and I would love to be able to help a cancer survivors realize their dreams of a college education!
