Happy Founder’s Day, Sigma Kappa!

Happy Founder's Day, Sigma Kappa!

Sigma Kappa Founders

We would like to take a moment today to congratulate Sigma Kappa on 143 years of sisterhood!

Sigma Kappa was founded on this day, November 9th 1874, by five lovely women. Mary Caffrey Low (first female student admitted), Elizabeth Gorham Hoag, Ida Fuller, Frances Mann and Louise Helen Coburn attended Colby College, in Waterville, Maine. Colby College was the first college in the New England area to allow women too attend on an equal basis with men students.

These women came together and created an organization that over 143 years would lead to more than 123 collegiate chapters of 168,000+ women. To say their ideals of “One Heart, One Way” were met, is an understatement!

Today we have our special Sigma Kappa Founder’s Day Tee, Mary Low’s Floral Bouquet, available (below)!

What an accomplishment to have an organization grow stronger every year for 118 years! Alpha Sigma Tau was found on November 4, 1899, at Michigan State Normal College (now Eastern Michigan University) in Ypsilanti, Michigan. They had eight lovely founders that paved the way for all: Helene M. Rice, Mayene Tracy, Adriance Rice, Eva O’Keefe, May Gephart, Mabel Chase, Ruth Dutcher, and Harriet Marx. These women would be so impressed with the sisterhood that has been built on their foundation.

According to Kappa Delta’s website this is what they said about Sara, and why we thought she was the perfect Founder to honor!

SARA TURNER WHITE

“The daughter of a Virginia state senator, Sara was a true Southern belle and very popular on campus. In later years, she frequently hosted Founders Day festivities as her home, and readings of the Ritual on those occasions invariably brought tears to her eyes.”

 

 

 

Here is a wonderful video that Kappa Delta featured on their website to their Founders and heritage! Enjoy!

 

Again, Happy Founder’s Day, Kappa Delta!
