Letter from the President

Dear Sisters,

Kappa Delta Chi, Sorority Inc. was created at Texas Tech University 30 years ago this month. Today more than 5,000 members worldwide are “Leading with Integrity, United through Service.” Over the years we have been blessed to see tremendous growth in our sisterhood. In my two years as National President I find myself in awe over the amazing work our sisters do across the nation. Though it’s something I’ve known for years on a local level, being able to see it, hear it, and hear the gratitude from outside organizations about it is inspiring. From the sheer number of service hours to the tremendously

impactful ways we touch our communities, the love and service of our sisterhood is awesome. It is a true blessing to represent such remarkable, dedicated, and loving women.

As we grow as a sisterhood, the way that we support our undergraduate and alumnae members and chapters from the national level has significantly evolved, and continues to do so. From our National Leadership Conference and Regional Leadership Conferences to the way we do chapter officer training, we are expanding our scope and providing more guidance on the topics you have asked about about most.

This issue of The Emerald will highlight some of the inspiring work being done across the nation. You’ll read stories from sisters and learn more about what national divisions are working on. This month we celebrate how far we’ve come and look forward to where we go from here.

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as National President over the last two years. Thank you for all you do every day to make this organization a place of love, respect, and service for everyone.

In sisterhood,

Melanie Rodriguez

National President, Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc.
