Happy Founders Day, Kappa Delta!

Today is a special day for my sorority, because it is the 120th anniversary of our founding! I love being a sorority woman, and I credit Kappa Delta for so many of the opportunities and experiences I’ve been afforded.

Last year, I shared my sorority story, and I’m linking back to that this year, too. Since I shared last year, I’ve made a few transitions in my volunteer roles in Kappa Delta. Now, as a member of the sorority’s National Leadership Team, I get to work with alumna chapter advisors. I love that work, and I love getting to see the passion and commitment other volunteers have for our beloved Kappa Delta.

In my local role, supporting the Kappa Delta Chapter at Washington State University, I am currently advising the Vice President of Community Service. I really enjoy this role as well, because I get to support the college women as they share their time and talent with the local community and local Girl Scouts.

KD 2017

Pictured above are a few snapshots from my KD year since the last Founders Day. Starting from the top left: this was a picture of the newly elected council on election night at WSU. I love getting to go to Pullman for elections. I totally geek out on the election process, and I think it’s such an exciting time in the sorority.

Top middle: My long-time friend and sister, Melissa, and I got to catch up when I was home in Texas over the summer. Loved getting to see her!

Top right: The council/advisor retreat we have every January is called Kamp KD, and it’s a blast!

Middle left: I was honored to have some sorority sisters sit with me at my table during the annual Girl Scout Luncheon. I love my supportive sisters!

Middle middle: Every Kappa Delta was gifted an AOT necklace at Convention in Arizona this summer. It is definitely a treasure, and a great reminder of the unbreakable bond of sisterhood.

Middle right: I had the privilege of advising this amazing young woman, Rachael, this year, and I loved getting to spend time with her in Arizona.

Bottom left: My sorority bestie, Courtney! Don’t know what I would do without her. She’s my confidant, my biggest cheerleader, and the best sister anyone could ask for. Love you, girl!

Bottom middle: I had the opportunity to travel to Mississippi for a sorority visit in the spring. I loved my time with the KD Ladies at Millsaps College.

Bottom right: Donut you want to be a KD, too?!

I gifted my niece and nephew their own KD swag, so they could get dressed up to celebrate Founders Day, too 😉

A special Happy Founders Day to all my Kappa Delta sisters, and a happy Monday to everyone!

Party on!
