Delta Pi

Ripon College, Ripon, Wisconsin, February 27, 1960

Local Pi Tau Pi was installed as Delta Pi in 1960, making it the fourth of five local sororities to "go national." In 1962, all sororities moved into Johnson Hall where each had its own chapter room and Delta Pi still meets today. The chapter presents the Edith Fleming Award to a senior woman who has demonstrated loyalty to Delta Pi, as well as Ripon College. Alumna initiate Edith Fleming served as the chapter's first advisor, having served as an advisor to the local. The award was established by her husband, a Ripon professor, in her memory. A charter alumna initiate who was a member of the local, Fran Gross Grenlie returned to Ripon for many years to perform the Jewel Degree which was followed by a luncheon that was faithfully attended by Roberta Comfort, a member of the local. Jean Gibson Woolley, Alpha Alpha - Colorado, served the chapter for many years. Kristin Bazzoli Piotrowski was a long-serving advisor.
