Mu Founder's Day 2012

Sunday, March 11th, the women of Mu chapter held their annual Founder's Day celebration at the Courtyard by Marriott. The banquet room was full of collegians and alumni from Mizzou and several other chapters, including two Ole Miss new members!

After discussing our chapter, philanthropy efforts, and honoring outstanding members, the audience was able to hear the story of US Representative and DG sister, Jo Ann Emerson speak about her college career at Ohio-Wesleyan and her professional career in the political field. We were so happy to have her join our celebration.

Founder's Day is a special time for DGs everywhere to reflect on why Delta Gamma was so important to Mary, Eva, and Anna, and important to members today.

A special thanks to Stacey Sheridan, Director of Alumnae Relations, who planned the event with the help of advisor Debbie Bertram Link.
