Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. Celebrates 25th Anniversary at home in Lubbock, TX

Silver Horizon: Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Empowering the Future    

For Immediate Release:

(Lubbock, TX) Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. is proud to welcome coverage of our 21st annual conference to be held June 22-24, 2012 where the national organization was founded in Lubbock, Texas. The Overton Hotel and Conference Center will host over 230 sisters who will be in attendance and the excitement is building as each of our four founders will be there and are eager to mix and mingle with the ladies who've expanded the community service sisterhood nationwide. Sisters will be able to hear directly from them about why the sisterhood still resonates and means more to them now that a wave of positive change across our national communities has spread. They will also share their hopes for what they hope the organization will achieve over the next quarter century. Founder Irene Montoya Robinson says she's most excited about meeting the ladies who chose to be part of the organization she helped to spearhead and adds, "we are looking forward to hearing all of the wonderful stories of how KDChi sisters have impacted their communities."

The theme to be celebrated on this silver anniversary is:  

Silver Horizon: Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Empowering the Future  

The conference overall will center on building better leaders and will allow an opportunity for sisters to reconnect and network with other sisters across the nation. KDChi sisters have volunteered their time to host this exciting event, produce the three days of activities and will facilitate workshops created to train members on strengthening chapter functionality, personal and professional development and those in attendance will also as a group provide community service to the Lubbock community. 

KDChi prides itself on building stronger sisters and chapters across the nation and the conference will include workshops to foster internal chapter development. For undergraduates, personal development workshops will focus on such topics as financial literacy, conflict resolution skill building, graduate school preparation, and work life balance. Alumnae and professional members will have separate workshops that will address health and wellness issues for women, legal issues, and best ways to serve the organization after graduation. There will also be room for fun as the ladies will get healthy and exercise to the new dance craze sweeping the nation Zumba and an 80's night that will allow sisters from across the nation to network and bond with one another.  

Our featured speaker after the training will be the first Hispanic woman to become a Marine Corps Brigadier General, Major General Angela Salinas of the United States Marine Corps. Salinas is currently the director of Manpower Management Division, Manpower and Reserve Affairs, Headquarters Marine Corps. On August 4, 2006, when she assumed command of Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, she became the first woman to command the Recruit Depot.  On August 2, 2006, Salinas became the first Hispanic female to become a United States Marine Corps general officer, and the sixth female in the Marine Corps to reach the rank of brigadier general.

When the Marine Corps heard about the opportunity to join with KDChi, they jumped at an opportunity to speak about leadership to the future leaders of our nation and Captain Juan R. Chavez shared the following, "It has been a pleasure working with Kappa Delta Chi Sorority. The Marine Corps puts great value in leadership and this conference is a good example of good prior planning and execution.  We are looking forward to participating in future events with Kappa Delta Chi and its chapters at other universities."  

At the core of KDChi's values is community service and in 2011 alone the National Organizations undergraduate sisters completed over 40,000 hours of community service. On Saturday the sisters will join together and will devote a day to serving the local Lubbock State Supported Living Center. Opened in 1969, Lubbock State Supported Living Center serves as home to approximately 300 people with the diagnosis of mental retardation. The 24-hour residential facility sits on 226 acres and has 15 residential buildings and the sisters will be joining forces to engage and host events with their residents.
