June Newsletter

Several KDs in central Arkansas have met at area restaurants for happy hour over the past month. Amanda Pace has done an
excellent job of getting these groups together, and if you have any suggestions or questions about these events – contact CAKD at

National Convention - Rachel will be traveling to Orlando for National Convention June 27 - July

Zeta Gamma Early Years Reunion in KD house in Fayetteville (contact Stephanie Chaney for more information at July 31- August 2.

Longwood Event (AA’s from Zeta, KD, Alpha Sig, and Tri-Sig). We are still working on this event, but plans have not been confirmed yet. TBA

New Kappa Delta chapter at UALR - I recently communicated via e-mail with Kappa Delta National Panhellenic Delegate Julie Johnson about the upcoming colonization at UALR. I think that nationals is excited about the upcoming colonization.. Many of the events will only need limited assistance from the AA and alumnae; however please mark Sunday, September 27th at 2 p.m. as the Bid Day Celebration, which will be on the campus of UALR.

Also, help from our young alumnae may be requested during welcome week (August 21-28), and possibly for orientation dates (July 10, Aug 4, of Aug 12). In addition, the CAB Interest/Training meeting will probably coincide with the UALR orientation dates (July 10, Aug 4, of Aug 12); so please keep those dates open for possible CAB training if you signed up earlier this spring. If you are still interested in CAB (which will probably be the alumnae called upon to assist with the recruitment efforts) and have not let us know, please contact me or Louise Geib at

Scholarship Committee - The scholarship committee is now beginning to plan and implement funding the UALR scholarship for a member of the new colony. To endow a $1000 scholarship, they are looking to raise $12,500. Please let us know if you are interested in making a donation or in the fundraising efforts.

GLRAP Reference Book - Resumes and bios have started coming in for the Greater Little Rock Alumnae Panhellenic Reference Book. Please send an email to if you are able to help us out with references from specific schools, churches, or community groups.

Kudos to our KD Sisters - Ruth Darrow Shepherd (Nu) – Ruth is the executive director for Just Communities (, and recently was in High Profile of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette for her organizations Humanitarian Awards Dinner honoring Gov. Mike Beebe.
Jessica Cranford Ellis (Zeta Gamma) – Congratulations to Jessica, as she married her husband Brook Ellis this past month.
