My name is Tessa Lackey, and I am so excited to be the chapter president of the Beta Xi chapter of Delta Delta Delta at Stephen F. Austin State University!
Although it has been three years since then, I remember running to the beautiful, brick house in the middle of sorority row in August of 2017 like it was yesterday. I had no idea what I was getting myself into… And I mean that in the best way possible. Finding my home in Tri Delta on 424 N Steen Drive on that day has since provided me with a “perpetual bond of friendship” with the most amazing women I have ever known, countless opportunities for growth as both a student and an individual and more memories that I can name that I am sure will last a lifetime.
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. Tri Delta’s current national goal is to raise more than $60 million in 10 years for St. Jude, and we are well on our way to achieving that. Our annual Pancake Breakfast and Triple Play softball tournament is something we look forward to every year because we know we are helping children at St. Jude.
My sisters constantly remind me the importance of our organizations three core values: truth, self-sacrifice and friendship. I have witnessed the way instilling these values in our hearts and minds of our members have helped us all become the best version 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 2020! Please enjoy our website and learn more about Tri Delta!
Delta Love and Mine,
