Sarah Kammer, the Hammer Behind Alpha Delta Pi

Sarah Kammer and how she influenced Alpha Delta Pi. She speaks on her experience as president and how she coped with everything else going on in her life. Also, some of her friend express their feeling about Sarah.

STATESBORO, GA– April 20, 2010

Studying for nursing tests, planning a wedding, playing on her sororities’ basketball team, and being a homecoming queen representative, Sarah Kammer has her job cut out for her. Although most people would crack under pressure, Sarah Kammer hammered out her duties as the president of Alpha Delta Pi.

Sarah Kammer is the former president of Alpha Delta Pi -the very first secret society for women ever. Since Alpha Delta Pi’s beginning in 1851, its leaders have always been the finest of women. Sarah Kammer is no exception.

She was voted in the December of 2008. 2009 was a very busy year for Sarah. Not only was she the president of ADPi, she was a second semester nursing student and training to be an orientation leader for the summer of 2009. Most people would be stressed and very irritable towards the loved ones in their lives. Sarah handled the pressure with grace. Sarah says, “I just really took it day by day. I learned to prioritize and ask for help. With ADPi I have 125 girl friends that will help me no matter what. I learned to take advantage of that. This also strengthened a lot my relationships with my sisters. Overall the pressure and all the stress gave me confidence that I can do anything with the support of all of my friends and family.”

Previous Alpha Delta Pi president, Kelsey Grubbs comments on Sarah’s leadership skills. “Sarah is a great president because no matter how hectic things get, Sarah keeps her cool. I have never seen a freak out in Sarah’s part.” Kelsey laughs as she says, “She has helped me with all my freak outs. Presidency is stressful, I don’t know how she does it so gracefully.”

It is a great honor for an individual to reach the role of president in any organization. The fact that the organization had to vote in the individual says a lot about that person. When ADPi voted in Sarah as their president they put all their trust in her. They trusted her to lead their most important organization. Allison Harrington, member of Alpha Delta explains that Sarah Kammer was the best person for that role. She says, “Sarah had proven her leadership skills for two and a half years at ADPi as the philanthropy chair and the standards chair. We all knew she was going to do a great job, but she went beyond all of our expectations during her term.”

Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA, Sarah went to Parkview high school. She excelled in high school with superior grades and a starting position on Parkview’s soccer team. She graduated in 2006 and decided to continue her education at Georgia Southern University.

The summer of 2006 she moved to Statesboro, GA, home of Georgia Southern University. That summer she made a life changing decision and decided to go through panhellenic recruitment (better known as sorority rush). During the week of rush Sarah learned a lot about herself and made many new friends. She was torn between two sororities but now feel like she made the very best decision. She chose Alpha Delta Pi. Sarah says, “I just went with my heart on that decision. I feel like I made the best decision for me.”

Her freshman year was a great experience for Sarah. She says, “I really submerged myself with ADPi my freshman year. I put a lot into my sorority and got a lot out of my sorority. That’s how life is. You can embrace it or you could just let it pass you by. I picked to embrace college, and I think ADPi was the best way to do that.”

Sarah completed her presidential term in December 2009. She is now planning a wedding with her fiancé and finishing up nursing school at Georgia Southern University. She says, “It’s weird that I am not the president anymore and to see someone else leading our chapter meetings. I do miss it but now I can focus on starting my grown up life with a spouse and a career. It’s bittersweet. I am very excited but I know I am going to miss everything about college and ADPi.

As Sarah moves on with her adult life she will always have a very special place in her heart for Alpha Delta Pi. “I will never forget all the memories and friendships I have formed here. All of the girls mean so much to me and I cant wait to see all of them on my wedding day.”

I didnt really enjoy chapter three as much as I enjoyed chapter one and two. Chapter three was about a bunch of legal matters, which really dont interest me to the slightest. BUt, as always, there were a few facts that caught my eye.

  • copyright lasts the lif of the creator plus 70 years. (wilcox)
  • defamation can mean both libel and slander (wilcox)
