Recognizing outstanding alumnae.
With so many outstanding Kappa Deltas in the world, it’s only natural to recognize their achievements. We do this with a number of awards and honors.
Order of the Pearl
Order of the Pearl is given to an alumna who has made outstanding contributions at the national, state or local level in areas other than service to Kappa Delta. Nominated by her Kappa Delta sisters and selected by a committee, the recipient has exemplified in every way the ideals of the sorority through service to the community. Complete a nomination form. Nominations are due Nov. 1. Click here to view a list of past recipients.
Order of the Emerald
Order of the Emerald is given to an alumna who has displayed extraordinary service to Kappa Delta at the local, state or national level. Nominated by fellow Kappa Deltas and chosen by committee, the recipient has exhibited selfless devotion to the sorority through service at the national level or locally on a chapter advisory board, alumnae chapter, house corporation board or alumnae Panhellenic.

Longtime membership in Kappa Delta is something to celebrate! It’s hard to imagine what 25 or even 75 years as a Kappa Delta looks like when you are first initiated, but sisterhood in KD lasts a lifetime. National Kappa Delta honors our members who celebrate milestone anniversaries.
The Diamond Circle honors Kappa Deltas who have been members for 75 years. The Emerald Circle marks a member’s 60th anniversary as a Kappa Delta. The White Rose Circle commemorates 50 years of Kappa Delta membership. The Nautilus Circle honors those who have been members of Kappa Delta for 25 years.
Women arriving at these milestones who have a good address on file with national Kappa Delta receive a letter of congratulations from the national organization and a certificate of recognition. Please log in to the member portal to make sure your address is correct.
