LetterFrom the President
My name is Emmy Iannone, and I have the privilege of serving as Chapter President to the 270 sisters of the Beta Pi Chapter of Kappa Delta here at the University of Florida. I invite you to explore our website and take a glimpse into our sisterhood.
I ran home to Kappa Delta in the fall of 2018, where I was embraced by the women who have come to be my greatest friends and mentors. From the very first moment I stepped through the doors of Kappa Delta, I knew it was a special place. Since that first day, Kappa Delta has given me more than I could ever repay. I have been challenged to grow as a person, a leader, and a friend.
I am constantly in awe of the wonderful people I get to call my sisters, and I am honored to share with you why:
Our sisters strive to excel on the University of Florida campus in academics, leadership, and service. Each year, our chapter raises over $22,000 annually through our dodgeball and paintball tournaments to support the Child Advocacy Center of Gainesville. Additionally, we host events each semester with our local Gainesville Girl Scout troop to support Kappa Delta’s national mission of “Building Confidence, Inspiring Action.”
Our women are active contributors in both our community and on our campus. Members of Kappa Delta serve in leadership positions in organizations including Dance Marathon, Student Government, Florida Blue Key, and so many more. The presence that our membership has on the UF campus and local area highlight the different passions that drive our members.
These accolades are one of the many reasons why I am endlessly thankful to be a member of Kappa Delta at the University of Florida and to lead these outstanding women. The benefits I have been given from my membership in Kappa Delta are innumerable, and it has been the honor of my collegiate experience to serve as Chapter President. As you explore our website, I encourage you to think about what you seek to gain from your own collegiate experience. It is my sincerest wish that you too will enjoy the gifts of sisterhood as wonderful as this.
With Love in AOT,
