In 1987, four friends came together to make their dream a reality of establishing a sorority that would unify Hispanic women at Texas Tech University. These four friends, who later became known as our Founders, sought to incorporate the principles of Unity, Honesty, Integrity, and Leadership into this organization. They proceeded to find an advisor that would help them establish this organization; thus, Marlene Hernandez, Assistant Director of New Student Relations, became their first faculty advisor.
After the application process began at Texas Tech, the only task left was to find a name for the sorority. After much research and debate, our Founders decided on Kappa Delta Chi. Within time, they recruited the help of ten other women who demonstrated the same passion to promote the same ideals. These ten women later became known as the Charter members of Kappa Delta Chi.
On April 6 1987, our four Founders: Cynthia Garza, Nellie Flores, Irene Montoya, and Melissa Montoya, along with our 10 charter members, were blessed with the official recognition as an organization at Texas Tech University.
