Georgetown College Junior, Covington Native Wins Leadership Award
The Kappa Delta Foundation has presented junior Lydia Blaise Allen with a Corre Anding Stegall Collegiate Leadership Award. It is named for former National President Corre Anding Stegall and is presented each year to the top echelon of Kappa Delta student leaders.
As an award recipient, Allen also gets a $3,000 scholarship to be applied to her 2016-17 tuition. The presentation was one of 20 Stegall Awards given February 6 at the sorority’s National Collegiate Training Academy in Orlando.
Recipients are chosen based on high academic performance and exemplary leadership within the chapter, on campus and in the community. The award is the highest individual honor Kappa Delta gives to undergraduate members.
On a previous occasion, Allen received the Kim Flood Ryan Spirit Scholarship Award, an award presented exclusively to one Kappa Delta undergraduate in Kentucky. She is a member of Beta Lambda chapter at Georgetown College which was established in 1946. She has also served as chapter Vice President of Membership from January 2015 to January 2016.
Allen, from Covington, is a double major in Psychology and Communication and Media Studies. She is the reigning Miss Horse Capital of the World, a title she won in October 2015 at a Miss Kentucky preliminary event held in Lexington. That title qualifies her for the 86th Annual Miss Kentucky Scholarship Pageant scheduled for June 30-July 2, 2016 at Singletary Center for the Arts on the campus of the University of Kentucky.
