President, Fall 2021
Hello Lavender Ladies!
My name is Jaida Mitchell and I have the honor of being the President of Delta Kappa Psi for fall 2021! As President, I hope to remind all of our sisters just how amazing this sisterhood truly is. After a year of not being together in person, it is easy for us to feel disconnected at times. But, with a safe return planned for the fall, I hope we can all bond once again.
This spring we welcomed 17 amazing young women into our organization which brought our Initiated/Acive total to 60! Although we were all online, we managed to make the best of the situation by continuing our bonding events and hosting fun trivia games via Zoom.
After serving as one of the first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Chairs, I will continue to work to make Delta a more inclusive and safe space for all sisters and our communities as President. The DEI position was created to strengthen our support for one another and will hold special importance upon returning in-person in the fall.
Our Initiated/Active members look forward to campus housing being open, in-person classes, and the return of sports along with other extracurrricular activities. Since campus was closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19 and we were never in-person this year, many of our members have only met briefly or through a screen! We anxiously await the moment we can meet again in the Delta house to celebrate all we have overcome through the chaos of thie last year.
The fall semester will grant us a sense of normalcy that we can all look forward to. The possibility of growing our sisterhood and returning to campus keeps us all hopeful for what the future holds.
