President, Spring 2023
My name is Kalea (“Kale”) Trudeau, and I am the lucky girl who gets to serve as Delta’s spring 2023 President. I’m so thrilled to be working with a wonderful Executive Team and Active Circle to end our year in the best way possible.
In the fall of 2022, we brought in a stunning New Member Class of 13. We tied for the biggest class size, which was thrilling for many reasons, but most importantly because we got to invite the highest quality of women into our sisterhood. We tested a new process for selecting Littles, which worked wonderfully, and we formed fantastic bonds with one another. Our Actives are truly dedicated to Delta and they spend every day trying to make Delta the greatest that it can be. We have girls on Greek Council, athletic teams, several honor societies, community service clubs and more. These women bring so much to the table. We have faced every challenge as a team, and I believe our circle is more connected and happier than it has ever been.
Over winter break, I met with all of the new Executive Officers and several Non-Exec Officers to discuss their positions and ideas for this semester. We have so many new things to implement to improve our sisterhood, while remaining extremely dedicated to our cherished traditions. Our overarching theme is definitely “support.” It is my goal to prioritize supporting each other and creating genuine care and friendships that can overcome any obstacle. With a team of 27 lovely on campus actives, and 3 sisters abroad, I am confident we will be able to create a positive environment that is ideal for success. While Greek Life numbers at Redlands have been declining, Delta is in an extremely strong position and we are set up for excellence. We have a beautiful bond that I believe will truly shine during rush this semester, and I am extremely hopeful for the future.
This spring I hope to build on the wonderful foundation that my predecessor Brooke-lynn
Thomas left me. I am so thankful for the example she has set for me, as well as those who have come before us. I am truly so blessed to have been able to watch four presidents serve during my time in Delta, and I think about those who came even earlier very often. I hope that my leadership inspires many women to love Delta just as much as I do. This circle of women is ready to make everyone proud. I can’t wait to see what this semester has in store for us!
