Chapter History

This year the Delta Pi chapter of Delta Gamma celebrated its 44th anniversary. Our Founders Day celebrations were held on March 25th and 26th at the University of Southern Mississippi.

We hosted an alumnae social Saturday, March 25th, and a great group of alumnae joined us for socializing and games at the chapter house.

On Sunday March 26th, we welcomed even more alumnae and their families to hear from outstanding Delta Gammas in our area. We were reminded by Delta Pi alumna Sue Bacon Shivers what it means to be a Delta Gamma.

Pam Shields Award: Brooke Bullock
Jenny Sue Ashley Award: Megan Duke

One of our advisors, Kim Ward received the Cable Award at Founders Day for her outstanding dedication to Delta Gamma as an alumna. We are so thankful for all that you do for us and for Delta Gamma!


In concluding another wonderful Founders Day, the collegiate chapter would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the founding members, founding advisors, and all alumnae of Delta Pi. We do not love Delta Gamma because she is great. She is great because we love her.
