Founders Day Celebration




Kappa Alpha Theta was founded in 1870 as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. We value our history and take pride in our four founders, who were truly visionary. We also value what we offer today's women! Our vision statement—Kappa Alpha Theta is the organization that provides the finest and most rewarding membership experience—is based on our core purpose and values. Our purpose is to support members to learn, grow, and excel, and our core values are personal excellence, friendship, sisterhood, scholarship, service, and leadership.

Hannah Fitch Shaw, one of the founders, wrote in a college essay "On Choosing an Occupation" ca. 1871:

When women have the courage to choose congenial occupations in which by proper application they may achieve honor and success, then will they attain their greatest influence and whether in the law office, at the merchants counter, in the school room, with sculptor's chisel or painter's brush, or engaged in the daily routine of home duties we shall everywhere find them cheerful and contented, and accomplishing the great work of life.

Over the years, our members followed the advice given by Hannah Fitch Shaw and have chosen "the great work of life." We take this opportunity to recognize some of our more "notable" members who are recognized for their contributions to their profession or to the larger community.

We present some of our most notable members.

The Archives is a program financially supported by Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation.
