    Kelly Klish

    President, Spring 2021

     

     Hello Lovely Lavender Ladies!

     

    My name is Kelly Klish and I am very excited to serve as President of Delta Kappa Psi for spring 2021!  As President, my main focus will be staying positive despite the impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives while also moving forward in terms of Delta love, inclusion, support and involvement.

     

    Sadly, we said goodbye to two seniors this past fall, but we are so proud of them both for graduating a semester early.  Study abroad was, unfortunately, cancelled again this semester due to the pandemic but that also means we will have 44 amazing women active this semester.

     

    The fall of 2020 had its challenges due to classes being online.  We were able to stay connected with our sisters though through regular chapter meetings and bonding events such as trivia and movie nights via Zoom.

     

    Our active members look forward to campus housing being open for spring although classes will remain online indefinitely.  We anxiously await the time when classes, campus jobs, sports and other extracurricular activities return to normal!

     

    Delta is very excited to be a part of the University of Redlands' first virtual rush this spring.  Second semester freshmen will be able to rush this semester and we look forward to the possibility of taking a large class as we have many excited potential big sisters.

     

    This semester we will continue to make Delta a more inclusive and safe space with the help of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Chairs and Member Development Chair.  These positions were created this past fall to strengthen our support for each ohter and will help us diversify our sisterhood.

     

    The spring semester will bring a change of pace we can all look forward to.  The possibility of growing our sisterhood and being on campus keeps me hopeful for what the future holds.

     

    Delta love,

     

    Kelly Klish '21

     The D is for DELTA: Graduation Edition

    by Liran Koropitzer '19 in Honor of the Class of 2020

     

    D is for dreams, the things that will keep you going. Check off this one today and never stop your list from growing. You’ve accomplished so much to get where you are today, as the years stretch on, the pride will stay. 

     

    E is for Excitement. Your journeys have just begun. If you thought undergrad was great, just wait for all the adulting fun. The next decade before you will be one of growth and adventure, at least for the next few months you’re off the hook from online lecture.   

     

    L is for legacy, something I have no doubt that each and every one of you have made, at least I’d sure hope so after everything you’ve paid. Your time as an undergrad may have come to an end, but life is full of joys and surprises just waiting around the next bend. 

     

    T is for Tenacity. A trait each of you exude, I’m sure if someone had predicted this day, you’d laugh in their face and say “ya, right dude”.  If these events have shown us anything it’s your immense strength, no matter what knocks you down, you’ll keep on fighting and go to any length. 

     

    A is for alumni, which you now officially are. As you can see your Delta sisters have gathered together from near and far. No matter where your journey takes you next, know you’ll always have a friend, and to be completely honest, that’s what matters most in the end.
