SOUTHERN MISS STUDENT EARNS
KAPPA DELTA NATIONAL AWARD

HATTIESBURG -- Molly Elizabeth Malone, an initiate of Beta Sigma Chapter at The University of Southern Mississippi, is one of 15 recipients of the 2003 Kappa Delta Sorority Corre Stegall Leadership Award.

One of Kappa Delta's most prestigious awards, the Corre Stegall Leadership Award is given to a student who shows outstanding leadership on her campus and within the sorority while maintaining high scholastic achievement. It is the highest award a Kappa Delta can receive while in college.

"Receiving the Stegall Award has been the highlight of my membership in Kappa Delta," Malone said. "It was a complete surprise, and I know that I could not have received this award without the support of my sorority sisters. Kappa Delta has made me a better person by helping me become a well-rounded individual by encouraging me to excel in academics, philanthropic endeavors, and campus involvement throughout my college career."

Malone is public relations major at Southern Miss. She has served as Kappa Delta's president for 2003, Diamond Darling captain for the Southern Miss baseball team, a Student Government Association senator and is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honorary.

She recently completed an internship in Washington, D.C., with U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Bay St. Louis) and participated in a study-abroad program in London, England. She is the daughter of Ted and Dawn Malone of Atmore, Ala.

"Molly is an exceptional young woman," said Wynde Fitts, director of Freshman Year Experience at Southern Miss and former director of Greek Life at the university. "She's very deserving of that recognition."

Founded in 1897, Kappa Delta Sorority's mission has been the formation and perpetuation of fellowship, friendship and sisterly love among its members; the encouragement of literature and education; the promotion of social interest; and the furtherance of charitable and benevolent purposes.
