Mu Chapter at Millsaps College

Kappa Delta

Our Officers

Caroline Guilbeau

President

As President, I hold a dual role of leader and manager. My main responsibility is to oversee the operations of the chapter council. I delegate tasks to members of council and ensure that council members are fulfilling the duties of their respective offices. Joining Kappa Delta Sorority has been one of the best things to happen to me. Being surrounded by such wonderful women who support, motivate, and challenge you to achieve the most has been such a great experience I know I couldn’t get anywhere else. These woman have challenged me to grow as a leader and as an individual and have encouraged me to be the best version of myself every day. I wanted to join Kappa Delta council because I was inspired by older members who held positions prior to me. I was inspired by their poise and confidence. I knew they were the women I wanted to be like some day.

Sarah Maddox

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.

Beth Dowdy

VP-Membership

As VP-Membership, my main focuses are recruitment and sisterhood. I work to create an environment that will make more girls want to join Kappa Delta, and do so by holding workshops and running primary recruitment. I also work to uphold the morale of sisterhood by creating sisterhood events for members. 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 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!

Erica Bennett

VP-Community Service

As VP-Community Service I plan all philanthropy events, including events with the Girl Scouts and Shamrock events which help prevent child abuse in America. Kappa Delta has given me a confidence that I never knew I had. I have always been confident, but that confidence swayed back and forth. Joining KD taught me how important you are as a person, as an individual, and how you can shine in a group without trying to. Your abilities are not what defines you, they are just the sprinkles on the sundae that is you. True confidence comes from what you believe in and how you inspire others. KD, and more importantly my sisters, have given me true confidence by believing in me as Erica and pushing me to be the best version of myself I can be.

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 everyday. 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.

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. Kappa Delta has pushed me to become a better woman, sister, friend, and leader. This organization provides innumerable life skills and the richest friendships I’ve had the honor of experiencing. My love and passion for KD and the women in it is what inspired me to run for council and instilled the desire in me to give back to Mu Chapter in this way. I hope to lead the chapter to that which is honorable, beautiful, and highest through the strength and confidence of our sisterhood.

Secretary

As secretary for KD, my position focuses on making sure that other council members meet deadlines, making sure to account for who is present and who is excused at chapter and chapter events, working with the GIN System, and working with Nationals to help New Members through their initiation stages and awards after initiation. I joined council because I wanted to give back to a sorority that has given me so much. I believe we can continue to grow in so many ways and I want to be a part of that. I joined council to be able to make a difference in my sisters the way they have in me, and Kappa Delta has given me the confidence to want to pursue this.

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!

Julia Wicker

Panhellenic Delegate

As Panhellenic delegate, I am the representative for KD on the Panhellenic Council. I communicate with the other women’s Greek organizations on campus and assist in planning or organizing Panhellenic events. I wanted to be Panhellenic Delegate on council because I’ve always loved the idea of women supporting women across the row and I wanted to grow as leader while working side by side with women in other chapters as a united front.
