Professor Grogan Receives the 2019 Pi Sigma Alpha/James I. Lengle Chapter Advisor Recognition Award

News Release, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Susan Grogan, professor of political science, has been selected to receive the 2019 Pi Sigma Alpha/James I. Lengle Chapter Advisor Recognition Award. This award recognizes Grogan’s nearly 30 years of service as faculty advisor to Sigma Omicron Chapter at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and the chapter’s unbroken record of initiates during her tenure in this post.

The Pi Sigma Alpha Executive Council and the national office created this recognition, which includes a $1,000 prize and a certificate of appreciation, because it depends almost entirely upon the dedication and energy of the faculty members who serve as chapter advisors.  

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
