The Low Country Kappa Delta Alumnae Chapter recently earned three awards from the national sorority. The local alumnae were recognized for programming, community service and other achievements during the sorority’s virtual Biennial Convention.

Low Country KDs won the Alumnae Achievement Award, presented to only eight of the top alumnae chapters in the United States. It’s the chapter’s fourth Achievement Award since it was founded in 2009.

The local Kappa Deltas also earned the top award for Programming Excellence for in-person and virtual meetings held over the past two years. Programs ranged from virtual wine tastings and holiday decorating to walking tours of Old Town Bluffton and Comedy Nights on Hilton Head.

Finally, the KDs were named one of the top 10 chapters in the country participating in “Shamrock Projects” to raise funds for child abuse prevention. This year the Low Country KDs held Beach Walk to benefit CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention of Beaufort). In the past 12 years, Kappa Deltas have contributed thousands of dollars to the local nonprofit.
