A Note from Our President
Hello and welcome to our website!
My name is Katie Hayden. I’m a junior majoring in Health Sciences (health studies & pre-physician assistant) and am also minoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I am the current CEO of the Eta Rho chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. Our chapter is one of 145 active chapters of Theta across the United States and Canada! As Theta women, we strive to provide guidance to sisters throughout their lives: both in college and as alumnae. Our sisters at JMU are well-rounded, competitive, authentic women who support each other through good times and bad.
Each year our chapter raises money for our internal international philanthropy and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA is an organization that supports and promotes advocates for abused or neglected children going through the foster care system. Volunteers are trained then paired with a child and act as a support system and an advocate for that child. They support the child in life, and in court when decisions are being made about the child’s future. At Eta Rho, we feel passionately about making an impact on children who have been overlooked, and we seek to raise thousands of dollars each year to donate to our local and national CASA. Our annual philanthropy events include Theta Potata, our Leading Women’s Tea, and Dare to Dodge.
In my time in Theta, my sisters have seen things in me that I had never seen in myself. Every day I am surrounded by women who inspire, motivate, and encourage me to be my best self. I am honored to serve as CEO and I hope to help our chapter continue to grow and improve in 2018.
