Collegiate Perspective: Famous Phis Series

Famous alumnae are often a hot topic of discussion during recruitment for many Alpha Phi chapters! Over the next few months we will feature Alpha Phi sisters who have accomplished some extraordinary career goals. Today we will feature and pay tribute to Alpha Phi alumna, Anne Martin, who joined the Silent Chapter on August 20, 2010. Anne pledged Alpha Phi at the University of Washington (Sigma) in 1947 and continued her involvement in Alpha Phi at the University of Montana, where she graduated in 1951 with a degree in English and Education. Upon graduation, Anne became an esteemed journalist and the first female to anchor the news in Seattle, Washington. She was also the prime time news anchor and co-host of Woman 2 Woman, KCBS-Los Angeles. She was a winner of three Emmy Awards®, two Golden Mike Awards, and an award for best 30-minute newscast. Anne has left an amazing legacy for Alpha Phis who are pursuing careers in journalism.

Annie Williams is a member of the Gamma Kappa chapter (CSU/Long Beach).
