Betty grew up in the small town of Crossett, Arkansas. Her high school days — aside from term papers, book reports, and science projects — were filled with the things that girls of the ‘50s enjoyed most: bunkin’ parties, football games, sock hops, “going steady,” drive-in movies and watching “The Ed Sullivan Show.” She loved the important details of fashion, including saddle shoes, …show more content…

I am writing this letter to express my interest in your illustrious organization, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am currently a senior majoring in Criminal Justice, minoring in African American Studies with aspirations of becoming a Social Justice Attorney. Born in the inner city of New York and being raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, I am not your typical Southern Belle or City girl. I like to think of myself as being a fine mix of the two.

I remember looking up to Taylor Haynes and even Kat Gillanders for their leadership around campus, and the level with which they carried themselves. I am proud that the girls of Sigma Kappa can walk around UGA without people thinking “look at that trashy sorority girl”. A big role in this is what the Standards Council does.
