MU's Tri Delta Chapter Introduces
New Sustainability Initiatives
From fundraising for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to participating in the MU Homecoming blood drive, Tri Delta has helped serve its members, campus and community in a variety of ways throughout its 104 of existence on campus. With the help of one Tri Delta member, their latest pillar of service now includes assisting in environmental sustainability.
In the fall of 2019, Celestene Sebag, Tri Delta member and biological engineering student at MU, took her passion of helping resolve current sustainability issues to her sisters to see how they felt about aiding in her efforts. Their response was everything Sebag had hoped it would be.
“At first I was nervous to ask about starting a Sustainability Committee, but I knew that it was something that needed to be done and that I could be the one to bring about change,” Sebag said. “Thankfully, Tri Delta has leadership that is so willing to change our organization for the better, and our president was so on board!”
First, Sebag and Tri Delta members worked together to create a sustainability committee to oversee such efforts. Currently there are four sustainability committee members, one member being Sebag, serving a little over 250 girls within the chapter’s house. As she explained, her goal was to bring about environmental awareness, while creating a community that is sustainable for future Tri Deltas and MU tigers alike.
