sorority's Distinguished Service Award, which had been given previously to only eight Kappa Deltas and one nonmember, Sigma Alpha Epsilon's William Levere, since the recognition was first introduced in 1989. CAROL MUSSER COORDT GAMMA IOTA-SAN JOSE STATE Almost immediately after graduation, Carol began serving the national organization in various roles that led to her leadership as national alumnae vice president 1979-1987. Since 1993, she has served on Kappa Delta's National Panhellenic Conference delegation where her efforts have impacted the greater fraternal world. In 2013, NPC created the Carol Coordt Alumnae Panhellenic Circle of Excellence Award to honor Carol's long-time dedication and leadership in Alumnae Panhellenics. Carol, who is known for her service to others, was named a Hometown Hero by her Manhattan Beach, California, community, and she received the Richstone Educator of the Year award and Nancy William's Award for Service to Early Childhood Education. Kappa Delta previously awarded Carol the Order of the Emerald, Order of the Pearl and the Woman of Achievement Award. Former National President Alison Jakes Argersinger thanked Carol for being "a friend to so many both inside and outside of our circle." PATRICIA BEECHAM NIEMAN SIGMA IOTA-WASHINGTON Described by Alison as a Kappa Delta powerhouse, inspiring leader and role model, Pat has served the national organization in many capacities since 1975, including national president 1989-1995, Kappa Delta Foundation vice chairman and National Panhellenic Conference delegate alternate. While serving as national director of philanthropy, she was instrumental in the creation of the Shamrock Project. During her term as national treasurer, 1985-1989, Pat oversaw the restructuring of the sorority's finances, increasing Kappa Delta's assets by more than $2 million. Under Pat's leadership as national president, the sorority built and moved into the headquarters building in Memphis, Tennessee; 18 collegiate chapters were installed; increased resources were devoted to the alumnae sector; and the foundation launched its Centennial Campaign. In addition, the trendsetting six-week pledge education program was developed, and she helped Kappa Delta support growing multiculturalism. Pat is an Order of the Emerald recipient, and in 2007, she became the second Kappa Delta (Minnie Mae Prescott was the first) to receive the sorority's Order of the Diamond for her service to the Greek world as a 12-year member of KD's NPC delegation. ORDER OF THE DIAMOND CINDY STELLHORN KAPPA ALPHA TH ETA FRATERNITY-INDIANA Kappa Delta has presented the Order of the Diamond since 1995 to a select few individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the women's fraternal movement. Cindy was instrumental in leading the Sorority Division with MJ Insurance to currently representing 21 of the 26 National Panhellenic Conference member organizations' group insurance and risk management programs. She is a founding board member and former president of the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee, a founding member of the Fraternity & Sorority Action Fund, a founding board member of the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation, a member of the NIC Commission on Sexual Assault, and a member of the NPC Government Relations Committee. Kappa Delta NPC Delegate Julie Landgren Johnson said, "The entire Greek community is stronger and better because of her dedication to the principles for which we stand and the countless contributions she has made."
