Kappa Delta

The Kappa Delta National Sorority was founded by four young women at the State Female Normal School (now Longwood College) in Farmville, Virginia, on October 23, 1897. On that day, Lenora Ashmore, Mary Sommerville Sparks Hendrick, Julia Gardiner Tyler Wilson, and Sara Turner White solidified the ties of friendship with the birth of Kappa Delta. Their original ideals of friendship, fellowship, and sisterly love have remained constant and strong for more than 100 years, and their sisterhood has today grown into an association of over 200 chartered chapters and over 175,000 initiated sisters nationwide.
