Letter from the President
My name is Shannon May, and I could not be more excited to serve as the next chapter president of the Beta Xi chapter of Delta Delta Delta at Stephen F. Austin State University!
Holy Cow! Running home to 424 N Steen Dr on bid day of 2018 feels like it was yesterday! Tri Delta has brought me everything I could have ever dreamed of and more! Being the first Greek in my family, I had no idea what to expect when going through recruitment. As soon as I walked through the blue doors at Tri Delta, I knew immediately I had found my home! This chapter has allowed me to grow into the women I have always wanted to be, shown me what true friendship means, taught me the importance of being “kind alike to all”, and proved that family is more than just your relatives! Tri Delta is truly my home away from home and I am forever grateful for the countless number of memories I have made so far as my time here as a collegiate member!
As Tri Delta women, one of our greatest and most rewarding commitments is our partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since 1999, Tri Delta has dedicated its philanthropic efforts to raising funds for the children at St. Jude so that childhood cancer may come to an end. In 2014 the women of Tri Delta pledged to raise $60 million in 10 years for St. Jude, and in just 6 years we have raised more than half! Our annual Pancake Breakfast, Letter Writing, 4K In A Day, and Spring Philanthropy event is something we look forward to every year because we know we are helping children at St. Jude.
College is crazy and filled with so many ups and downs, but I am so thankful that throughout these past three years my sisters have brought me constant love and support! Everyday my sisters remind me the importance of our organizations three core values: truth, self-sacrifice and friendship. Instilling these values in the hearts and minds of our members have helped us all become the best versions of ourselves. Each one of our members brings something unique and special to the chapter but we are all united by our steadfast love for one another.
It is impossible to put into words what a blessing it is to be a member of Tri Delta! On behalf of the Beta Xi chapter, we are so excited to welcome Pledge Class of 2021! Please enjoy our website and learn more about Tri Delta!
Delta Love and Mine,
