Dear Kappa Delta Alumnae, Family and Friends,
Welcome to the Delta Omega chapter of Kappa Delta sorority! Since our establishment in 1971, we have been striving to meet our open motto, “Let us strive for that which is honorable, beautiful, and highest.” Kappa Delta encourages its members to live this motto out everyday by encouraging its members to always be their best selves. Kappa Delta prides itself on diverse campus involvement, academic success, and upholding the core values of our sisterhood.
Kappa Delta’s founding sisters envisioned a sisterhood that took pride in serving others. This vision is carried out weekly through hands on work with our local philanthropies: Girl Scouts of the USA and the Sally Kate Winters Home, a safe haven for abused and neglected children. While partnering with the Confidence Coalition, Kappa Delta hopes to instill confidence in the lives of women, teens, and young girls. We truly believe that with confidence, girls will be empowered to stand up and live the lives they have imagined.
Each year, Delta Omega holds its Shamrock events. During this time, money is raised and donated to the national organization Prevent Child Abuse America, and locally to the Sally Kate Winter’s home in West Point, MS. Members of Kappa Delta, students, faculty, and the local community look forward to our biannual Late Night Pancake Dinner. Other Shamrock traditions include selling “Pinwheels for Prevention” and holding a full day committed to community service work around the Starkville area. In 2012, Delta Omega raised $52,017.85 through Shamrock events, making us the highest money-raising Kappa Delta chapter in the Nation for the fourth year in a row. As always, Kappa Delta actively supports the philanthropies of other Greek organizations on Mississippi State’s campus.
Once again, welcome to our website! We are so happy to share with you our many achievements and more importantly what we value most: our everlasting sisterhood and lifelong friendships that extend well after our four years in college.
Anna Claire Chastain
President, Kappa Delta Sorority
