SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Jan. 27, 2011 — Drury’s Director of Greek Life and Student Involvement, Andrea Battaglia, was selected by Kappa Delta Sorority to receive its $1,000 individual Confidence U grant.
The grant, which is an extension of the sorority’s Confidence Coaliton, will be used to host a mini-conference for college and high school women, as well as create an art display in the Drury Panhellenic building highlighting sorority women of the past and present who inspire confidence. The individual Confidence U award was designed to acknowledge a Panhellenic representative, Greek advisor or university leader who is making a strong and visible difference in the lives of women on his or her campus.
“Kappa Delta’s Confidence Coalition continues to provide women with the resources to realize their true potential,” Battaglia said. “Drury University is excited to partner with the Confidence Coalition to inspire confidence in our sorority women and enable them to do the same for others through our creative programs such as the Confidence [D]U mini-conference.”
“We are proud to honor Andrea with the Confidence U award and support the important work she does to instill confidence in women on the Drury campus,” said Beth Langford, Kappa Delta Sorority National President.
Battaglia holds a degree in chemistry and advertising from Drury University and has served her alma mater since 2005 supporting 11 Greek organizations and more than 90 campus organizations as Director of Greek Life and Student Involvement.
The Confidence U grants are awarded annually. For more information on the Confidence Coalition or grants, visit www.confidencecoalition.org or contact Bria Bolton at 901.748.1897, ext. 208.
