HAITI'S EARTHQUAKE: PERSPECTIVE OF PAST STUDENT TRUSTEE NILDA PYRONNEAU

Nilda PyronneauI am originally from Haiti and am a former Pi Gamma Mu student trustee. Pi Gamma Mu has always been a great supporter of Haiti, long before Haiti was on the front pages of every newspaper in the world.

Ten years ago, Pi Gamma Mu held a regional conference at the University of South Florida where I attended school. At that time, I was an international Pi Gamma Mu board member. I coordinated with the Haitian club on campus, known as Club Creole, to give a presentation on the Haitian culture. The presentation included singing, dancing, and poetry. As a social science organization, Pi Gamma Mu has supported Haiti and also helped fund a school in a small village in Haiti.

On January 12, 2010, Haiti was devastated by a disastrous earthquake that registered 7.0 on the Richter scale, leaving the Haitian population in need of global aide. The dreadful disaster has reduced Haiti to ruins and left many dead and homeless.

The earthquake has personally affected my family. The earthquake claimed the life of my uncle. His house collapsed on him on the first day of the earthquake. He did not get a chance to escape.

In conclusion, I trust that the Haitian people can find hope, peace, and happiness as they put their lives and their country back together.
