HIGH POINT, N.C., July 12, 2013 – Members of High Point University’s Kappa Delta sorority recently received three prestigious awards at the Greek organization’s annual conference.
The chapter was honored with the Academic Achievement Award for having one of the top combined GPAs of all KD chapters in the country, followed by the National Merit Award. The National Merit Award is given every two years to the top 10 percent of Kappa Delta chapters around the country.
“This achievement could not have happened without the hard work, time and commitment of more than 200 sisters, their families, friends and the support of High Point University’s Greek Life,” says Molly Phalen, vice president of public relations for the chapter.
Rising senior Cara Read was also honored with the Corre Anding Stegall Collegiate Leadership Award, the highest individual honor bestowed on an undergraduate member. To be eligible, the woman must have held more than one Kappa Delta chapter officer position, held one or more campus leadership positions and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
“Cara has served her chapter as an incredible leader, friend and sister to all,” says Phalen.
HPU’s Kappa Deltas held a number of philanthropic events during the 2012-13 school year including the Krispy Kreme Challenge, the All Things Southern Fishing Tournament and a College Day for local Girl Scouts.
