Due to generous alumni contributions to the 2016 Alumni Association Membership Campaign, the Delta Chi Alumni Association (DXAA) was able to allocate $1,250 towards four excellent rush events this summer. The chapter held successful events in Gulf Shores, Memphis, Atlanta and Starkville. We are proud to announce we have a total of 20 early bids and we are still looking to secure a few more as we are currently completing our formal recruitment.
The Executive Board recently had a retreat to Cat Island. Alumnus John Hariston ’87 led the retreat and assisted the Executive Board with creating an effective plan for the upcoming school year and many years to come. The chapter is ecstatic for the start of the upcoming year and is ready to continue meeting and exceeding our goals.
Additionally, thanks to alumni contributions to the 2016 Alumni Association Membership Campaign, the DXAA was able to send two out of four delegates to attend the 60th International Delta Chi Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. The two delegates were able to attend the convention without the burden of cost as the DXAA was able to use alumni contributions to pay for the hotel and travel expenses. The delegates who attended, Zac Howell “A”, Matt McCall “B”, Michael Burgess “D” and Jacob Stone – Social Committee, are extremely grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity and could not have done it without alumni support.
