“Sharing our LOVE of Alpha Delta Kappa”

 

Welcome to our Louisiana Alpha Delta Kappa Website. Our challenge this biennium is Infinite Possibilities. Looking at the Louisiana symbol for this biennium you will notice a road inside the mason jar. That road leads us to new beginnings: new friends, new sisters, new activities, and a renewed spirit in Alpha Delta Kappa.

 

The meaning behind the Symbol:

In the center, there is a mason jar. This part of the symbol represents my southern heritage. Growing up in the south my family used the mason jar to store up fruits and vegetables that my sweet Daddy grew in his garden. My family would always “share” some of these blessings with neighbors and friends. The mason jar is filled with sunflowers. To me the sunflower symbolizes faith and adoration for ALL that is. Sunflowers are a symbol of true faith and loyalty to something that is much bigger and brighter than themselves. I chose this to represent my love and devotion to Jesus Christ. Also in the jar are violets, the flower of Alpha Delta Kappa. This represents my love for our sisterhood and to show that Alpha Delta Kappa holds a special place in my heart. Inside the mason jar is a road. This road is representative of Infinite Possibilities - Alpha Delta Kappa International President, Judy Ganzart’s Theme. We never know where a road will lead us and who will join us on our journey. The last part of the symbol is a small purple heart to share where I live and the area of Louisiana which my family has had roots for many generations.

 

A field of sunflowers is amazing to see. Every single flower is parallel to the others around it. Because of a central focus, sunflowers stay unified in purpose and position.

 

The Bible says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”. (Psalm 133:1)
