Our Officers

Beth Dowdy

President

I wanted to join council to give back in the way that KD has given to me. The girls in KD have provided me with a support system that never fails, and I wanted to shine a light on them and instill the confidence they have given me to as many people as I can reach. Council was not only an incredible opportunity to spread confidence within our chapter but to the community, as well. My passion for these sisters makes me want to use this platform to do just that!

VP-Member Education

As VP-Member Education, it's my responsibility to make sure new members feel welcomed into our chapter by being both a friend and mentor for them. I have the privilege of teaching them everything from our values to ritual to the history of Kappa Delta. The new member period is a vital part of their experience, and my goal is to make it a lot of fun and pass our love for this sisterhood along to the new members. I wanted to serve on council again because I am passionate about Kappa Delta ritual because I think that our ritual is what sets us apart from other sororities. In addition, I wanted to join council again to continue to lead our chapter in preparation for our official visit in the spring. Overall, serving on council gives members the opportunity to challenge themselves by setting examples for the chapter, trying new things, as well as striving for that which is honorable, beautiful, and highest.

Amelia Christy

VP-Membership

As VP-Membership, I am focused on recruitment and sisterhood. I work to create an environment that will make girls want to join Kappa Delta, and do so by holding workshops and running primary recruitment. I also work to encourage sisterly bonds among the members of Mu chapter and keep the morale high by holding sisterhood events annually. I wanted to join council so I could give back to Kappa Delta, because KD has given so much to me. I strive to make all girls in the chapter feel accepted, loved, and an essential part of our amazing sisterhood. Council has and continues to amply my confidence more than I could have ever imagined. I want to use this platform and my passion for sisterhood to build upon every girl’s confidence in our chapter and outside of our campus as well.

Katelyn Norse

VP- Operations

As VP-Operations, it's my responsibility to overlook the leadership, academic, and OmegaFi system of our chapter, to ensure that everyone has their reports turned in on time, and to help in facilitating the transition of leadership positions in the chapter. Kappa Delta has instilled confidence in me that I never knew I had. From being initiated a year ago, to now holding a council position, I can honestly say that KD has opened me up to more than I knew was possible. I wanted to serve on council to have the chance to give back to the chapter, instill confidence in our members, and encourage leadership and academic success. Kappa Delta is truly more than just a sorority; it's a constant sense of encouragement and support!

Caroline Samson

VP-Community Service

Being the Vice President of Community Service, I have the privilege to encourage my sisters to engage in more acts of service with the community and the philanthropies of KD. I am so excited to be able to put on our Shamrock and Girl Scout Events to not only raise money for our philanthropies but also build more confidence within the young women in these organizations. I am so thankful for Kappa Delta and the extraordinary women that I am surrounded by each day. These women have given me confidence and motivate me to be a stronger leader. It is truly an honor to serve on the Mu chapter of Kappa Delta council.

Avery Nicholas

VP-Public Relations

As VP-Public Relations I am the ambassador for Mu Chapter of Kappa Delta to the Millsaps, Jackson, and Greek communities. It is my job to maintain a public image of our chapter that represents the values of Kappa Delta that we strive to uphold every day. Kappa Delta means so much more to me than just a sorority. KD has given me my home away from home, my forever friends, and a greater sense of purpose in my life. I wanted to serve on council because I believe in this chapter with my whole heart and love to help out in any way I can! I know that Kappa Delta has made me a stronger woman, sister, friend, and leader. For this, I am forever grateful.

VP- Standards

As VP-Standards I ensure the safety of all chapter members and handle our chapter’s risk management. This is done through monitoring social media, overseeing our social functions, and ensuring the wellbeing of each member. I am also in charge of our chapter’s academics where I guarantee that all members are excelling academically. My sisters in Mu Chapter have inspired me to become a better and more confident woman and leader. All of their love and support gave me the desire to give back to them and run for our chapter's council. I hope to be a good example and lead in a way that instills confidence, support, acceptance, and strength within our amazing sisterhood.

Lindsey Osbon

VP-Finance

As VP-Finance it is my job to make sure every member is upholding their financial obligation to this sorority. I create and manage a yearly budget, handle reimbursements for the chapter, and assign dues. I wanted to join council for Kappa Delta to give back to the sorority in an even greater way. KD has given me lifelong friends, memories, and opportunities. Serving on council will not only better myself for later in life, but it will allow me to put my creativity, ideas, and love into bettering the members of our chapter now!

Madalyn Burke

Secretary

Secretary is a position that requires extreme organization and proper time management. Kappa Delta has a strict schedule of events and traditions that must be followed and completed in a timely manner. Minutes for both Chapter and Council meetings must be written properly and sent to National Headquarters in a timely manner. Along with taking minutes, the Secretary must also keep account of the inventory of the lodge and manage any forms sent to National Headquarters. Joining Kappa Delta has been one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had in my life. I chose to apply for Council because I wanted to give back to an incredible group of girls who have given so much to me. Despite being a freshman, I have had nothing but support and encouragement from older members of Kappa Delta. My sisters have guided me through the transition onto Council and pushed me to achieve more then I ever thought I could. That encouragement and guidance, among numerous other reasons, is why I love Kappa Delta.
