Dear Alumnae and potential new members,
What an exciting year it has been
for the Delta Phi Chapter of Kappa Delta! Not only have we enjoyed ourselves throughout the year, we have also accomplished
many goals. We have been busy being leaders on campus, volunteering for the community, and having exciting sisterhood activities
within the chapter. We continued our dedication to excellence by recruiting an incredible group of 20 new members which
brings us to 51 amazing sisters. These new girls worked hard during their new member program and quickly became our new spirit.
They not only excelled within the Delta Phi Chapter, but have also become great leaders on campus. They have become involved
in many school organizations and philanthropic activities.
Delta Phi has sisters involved in every area of campus life. We have representatives in organizations and honor societies
such as Student Government, Orientation Team, Chemistry Club, Zephyr's recruitment team, Students in Free Enterprise, GSW
Choir, Campus Activities Board volunteers, American Medical Student Organization, Forensics Team, Panhellenic, Sou'Wester,
Biology Club, Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society, Order of Omega, and the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society to name a few. The chapter
has also won many awards such as winning 1st place in numerous Homecoming competitions and winning the coveted award Most
Spirited Organization. We were also ecstatic to be awarded the Shelia Averett Jones Award (Top Greek Organization) and the
Vivian V. Schilds (Top Overall Sorority) for the second consecutive year. We are also pleased to announce that our Sister
Meridith McKenzie was crowned Homeconing Queen 2006, Sister Ashley Smith was crowned Miss GSW 2006, and Sister Jenny
Faircloth was named Miss Gale 2006.
We also pride ourselves in maintaining a high cumulative GPA as a chapter. Currently our GPA is above the All Women's
Average at a 3.03. We realize the main reason for attending college is to achieve a degree, and we hold each sister accountable
for maintaining a certain GPA. We reward those sisters who have good grades, and offer support for those who need extra help.
Another exciting accomplishment for Delta Phi this year was the success of our Annual Shamrock Event. This year we hosted
the Miss Americus Pageant. Every year this pageant raises money for Prevent Child Abuse America in which we give
90 percent of our profits to the local Methodist Youth Home and 10 percent to the national Prevent Child America fund. Along with the money raised by Miss Americus, this
year we added the Miss Georgia Southwestern Pageant. Thanks to the hard work of our chairman and sisters we made this one
of the largest philanthropic events ever put together by our Chapter.
We ended the year by saying good bye to our wonderful seniors who have put in timeless hours to help make Kappa Delta
the best sorority in the nation. The 2002 Pledge Class has a lot of KD spirit and they will not easily be forgotten. However,
with good bye we also look forward to their Alumnae support in the future.
As you can see, Delta Phi has been extremely busy this year. We would like to thank our Alumnae who work hard each
and every year to help us accomplish our goals. Because of our Alumnae the past thirty-six years have been filled with
many memories. So, thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at recruitment in the fall. It is always an exciting
and sometimes overwhelming time, but who better to spend the greatest four years of your life with other than the Sisters
of Delta Phi Chapter of Kappa Delta.
Delta Phi President
