Leaving Their Mark
Current members and alumnae of Alpha Delta Pi signed the beams that will be used to construct the sorority’s new house in the Greek Village.
Several alumnae and students participated in a special event last week to celebrate the construction of the new Alpha Delta Pi house in the Greek Village.
Over two days, Alpha Delta Pi alumnae Jennifer Brinson and Jane Watson coordinated a beam signing drop-in event during which current members and alumnae of the sorority were able to see the construction progress and sign the beams that will be used to support the new house.
“Our goal was to encourage and offer a six-hour span over two days so that our past and present sisters could stop at our beautiful corner lot and witness the construction underway in a safely distanced manner,” Watson said. “Our creative project team, led by Lynn Dunn, turned our initial beam signing into an elevator shaft signing which has been a wonderful way to visually share.
“Not only are we thrilled to celebrate the beautiful home going up, but we are honored to show our support to the amazing active chapter members today who have shown tremendous resilience during this time,” Watson continued. “Most importantly, we are grateful to our donor base of friends and families supporting our chapter. All are welcome and we need you!”
The new Alpha Delta Pi house was designed by Cline Design, with Jim Compton, another NC State alumni and member of Delta Sigma Phi, as lead designer. Lynn Dunn, also an architect and alumna, has led the design team for the sorority. Sharon McKinney serves as the house corporation president, and her daughter Morgan Loughridge, also an alumna of the chapter, is a part of the team working on the build as well and handles finances. Carol Hooks is also a part of the house corporation team. Learn more about this project and others in the Greek Village at https://fsl.dasa.ncsu.edu/greek-village-project/.
