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.
