Lindsay Rabaut

VP- Member Education

"My name is Lindsay Rabaut and I am a sophomore majoring in early childhood education. I am from Grosse Pointe, Michigan (a small town right outside Detroit). Besides being in Kappa Delta I am also part of our cinema society and enjoy films immensely. If not for Kappa Delta I would not be as confident as I am now and would not have such an amazing support system. Kappa Delta is truly my home and I am so happy to be apart of this amazing group of women!"

I am so excited to take on the position of VP-Membership this term with Kappa Delta and can't wait to create some amazing new memories with my sisters!"

If not for KD I wouldn’t have experience with our amazing philanthropies. Post graduation I would like to pursue a career in law or social work working with victims of domestic violence and child abuse."

Carrie Valletto

VP- Public Relations

"I am a junior at JCU from Willoughby, Ohio. I love dogs (especially my own), flowers, having fun, sitting outside on a warm summer night, and Thomas Rhett. I was initiated into Kappa Delta in the fall of 2015 and already after one year, I have grown into a more confident and ambitious woman. I joined Kappa Delta because I wanted a home away from home, but little did I know that it would bring me so much more. Kappa Delta has given me some of the best friends that I have ever had and, also, the encouragement for me to become a better version of myself."

Sara Mihalik

Panhellenic Delagate

"Hi, my name is Sara Mihalik and I’m a freshmen from Akron, Ohio. I’m planning on majoring in Environmental Science and minoring in Business and in the future I want to use my degree to make a positive impact on our planet. I love flowers, manatees, playing the flute, Jon Bellion, and NUGS (aka chicken nuggets). In these last couple of months, I feel as if Kappa Delta has already helped me become more confident, happy, and a better leader as well. If not for KD I would not have met any of my amazing sister that I already know I am going to have lifelong friendships with and I would of never found my home on campus. I’m so thankful for everything this sorority has done for me so far and I’m so excited for what’s to come in the next year of being on council!"
