DG's Supporting Our UofA Full Circle Food Pantry

Delta Gammas from across the state pose with Chancellor and Mrs. David Gearhart the night before the U of A homecoming game. We gathered to help stock the shelves of the U of A Full Circle Food Pantry before heading to a lovely dinner at Tiny Tim's Pizza on the Fayetteville square. Between donations delivered that day and checks mailed in, we donated over 200 lbs of food and $300! That's a lot of good being done on our home turf, ladies!

An Exciting New Addition to Our NWA Alumnae Chapter

Our NWA alumnae chapter is so proud to have recently been able to walk beside our first ever alumnae initiate as she experienced her inspiration night and initiation ceremony! Mrs. Elizabeth (Ellie) Sherburn was welcomed as a legacy into the bonds by her mother, Vivian Reese Hill (AO) Viv's little sister, Mrs. Carol McAllester Allen (AO) and Ellie's big sister, Joy Wilkins Wolfe (AO).

We are exceptionally grateful to our collegiate Eta Omicron sisters at the U of A Ft. Smith for allowing us to participate in this inspirational event. If you haven't had the chance to attend initiation as an alumnae member, we'd highly encourage you to do so. What an amazing opportunity to reconnect with sisters and to be reminded of all of the bonds we share!

NWA Alumnae In Action

Laura Kent, our very own NWA alum and associate professor of mathematics at the U of A, co-chaired the national Cognitively Guided Instruction conference in Little Rock. During this amazing conference, math teachers and administrators got to learn from some of the leading math researchers from around the country. Here you see Laura delivering the opening remarks at the kick-off. Great job Sister!
