FSU sorority under leadership of COMM student, holds event for CHS

IStrayer Criclef there was one word to describe Savannah Strayer, it’d be motivated.

The Florida State junior is studying Media and Communication Studies in the School of Communication. She’s received the Torch Night Award, been a regular on the Dean’s List, ran for Student Senate and spent a summer in Croatia with Project Life International. “The missionaries who started the ministry were from my hometown,” she shared.

Her most recent accomplishment? Strayer was named the President of Kappa Delta (KD) Sorority for the 2015-2016 year. The position comes after serving as the Vice President of Operations, External Philanthropy Chair, SET Leader, and co-founding the KD Bible Study. Kappa Delta was the first sorority chartered at Florida State in 1904. Within the College of Communication and Information, there are over 20 students who are sisters of KD. Philanthropy is an essential part of the sorority and KD recently held an event for Children’s Home Society of Tallahassee.

The event, Bump It Like BECKHΔΜ, was held November 9th at the new intramural fields. Children’s Home Society is an organization focused on protecting the lives of and promoting healthy relationships with children and their families. The event was a soccer tournament reimagined – players surrounded themselves in an inflated bubble and played soccer. On their GoFundMe alone, the sorority raised $4,340 in a month for Children’s Home Society.

“I’m looking forward to being able to give back to KD more than what has already been given to me,” said Strayer.
