Kappa Delta Helps Girl Scouts Celebrate Centennial
By Sydni Walker
COMMERCE, TX—The ladies of Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority at Texas A&M University-Commerce helped the girl scouts in the surrounding community celebrate their 100th anniversary on March 24, 2012.
The Hollywood Green Carpet Event was held to honor the Girl Scouts’ founding date on March 12, 1912. One of the troop leaders dressed up like Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts’ founder, to take pictures with the girls. The Kappa Delta members served the food and refreshments, as well as having their own booths set up. The booths included making friendship bracelets, getting a makeover, making picture frames, decorating cupcakes, and filling out confidence worksheets.
“We are so pleased with how well the event turned out,” said Hilary Grider-Henk membership specialist for the area 5 Girl Scouts. “We have heard nothing but praise for the ladies of Kappa Delta. It was a great way to bring in the next 100 years, with 100 girls celebrating and learning about the past and their futures.”
The Girl Scouts of the USA is one of the 4 philanthropies Kappa Delta Sorority supports, along with Prevent Child Abuse America, Children’s Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, and the American Academy of Orthopedic Research. They hold at least two Girl Scout events each semester to help instill confidence in the girls.
