Delta Zeta Fulfills Pledge to Speech and Hearing Clinic

On Tuesday, April 10th FSU sorority, Delta Zeta, fulfilled their five-year commitment of $50,000 with their final check presentation of $8,215.86 to the School of Communication Science and Disorders. Delta Zeta’s Fall philanthropy, called Homeruns for Hearing, started in the Fall of 2015. Vice President of Philanthropy for Delta Zeta, Mikayla Reiser, spoke to us about their philanthropy. She stated, “Delta Zeta’s goal is to spread awareness of hearing impairment in our community as well as bring the gift of hearing to those who are in need. We are so proud to have fulfilled our commitment to bettering the community.”

The proceeds of this event are donated to FSU’s very own Speech and Hearing Clinic. This year, the money presented to the Speech and Hearing Clinic will be used to support the Integrated Preschool Program.  Director of the School of Communication Science and Disorders Dr. Hugh Catts shared, “We are very pleased to receive the gift from Delta Zeta that will help support the development of our preschool.  We continue to be impressed with the dedication and hard work they have shown in raising funds for this important project.”

Although the commitment Delta Zeta made has been fulfilled, the ladies of the sorority still look forward to seeing the advancements their contributions will make. Reiser said, “We appreciate the work that FSU CCI does and hope to continue to benefit the clinic in the future!”
