An individual’s character is created from their personal successes, achievements, experiences, failures and life situations. I personally could start out by saying here is a story of an addict who ultimately got herself together after 16 years of addiction to drugs, except that is not what defines me.

At the end of the program we did a service project with a nursing home here in Tuscaloosa and painted with the residence, as well as played bingo with them. This is just one of the many examples of how Delta Zeta has helped

Not only have I been able to provide a service for Central High School, athletic games, and Veteran's Day programs for children, I have been able to gain more respect from my peers, superiors, and myself. My services for JROTC have all ranged in description, but all fall under color guard events I have volunteered myself part in.
