A Sweetheart is someone from a fraternity, who has the same values and beliefs as Phi Sigma Sigma that is nominated by the chapter to be a part of it.
For the 2018-2019 year, sisters of the Zeta-Eta Chapter nominated Troy Curtis! Troy Curtis is in the Bachelor of Humanities program at Carleton University. He is an extremely busy guy; the president of The Carleton University Greek Council, the president of Kappa Sigma, a photographer and the list goes on. Troy is also kind, caring and is always there for the sisters of the Zeta Eta chapter. That is why we are honoured to call him our sweetheart!
"One of the best moments of my undergrad was hearing my name announced as the next Phi Sigma Sigma Sweetheart. And, while blue definitely is my colour, what the letters in gold on my chest represented is the reason I’m so proud to wear them alongside the sisters of the Zeta-Eta.
I really think I owe meeting this organization to serendipity: it started off as just an invitation to photograph their semi formal but quickly blossomed into the best opportunity to meet everyone individually by taking their composite photos 1-on-1.
For those who join Phi Sig as new members may realize, this one-on-one interaction with each sister is what I found truly the most valuable on my journey to becoming sweetheart because it was what showed me the breadth and diversity the organization encompasses. Each member had an amazing story for joining, different beautiful personalities, but all of them were leaders. Strong, charismatic, friendly, bold.
That’s what really made me fall in love with Phi Sig. As I grew to know each sister more and see the effort they put into being the best organization they could be, their true colours really showed. From placing first at Relay For Life a few years ago through the leadership of Melissa Cape, to putting on beautiful formal galas in the spring, I couldn’t help but fall in love.
I’m happy to have been able to look out for the women of Zeta Eta and Phi Sig who I’m now honoured to call Sisters. I'm impressed by their work ethic, dedication to each other and the surrounding community and their strength and love in unity.
I’m proud to wear the letters ΦΣΣ and to help Zeta-Eta continue to aim high." - Troy Curtis
