Kappa Delta

Our Officers

Taylor Suwarow

President

My name is Taylor Suwarow and I serve as the current chapter president for the Theta Epsilon chapter of Kappa Delta. I am a Senior at the University of West Florida with aspirations to graduate with a Bachelors in Communication Arts, majoring in Public Relations with minors in both Marketing and Hospitality, in addition to a certificate in Digital Marketing. I am originally from Huntsville, Alabama where I grew up with a large family with five siblings. Outside of Kappa Delta, I have held positions with UWF Homecoming, Campus Activities Board, Chi Alpha, FPRA, the College Panhellenic Council and Argo Arrival/Orientation, as well as a representative for New Member Insinuate, Student Advisory Board, Campus Collaboration Board, University Commons and Student Involvement Training, Fraternal Leadership Institute, National Collegiate Training Academy, Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values, Disney's Approach to Leadership, and The Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute. I am a founding member of Kappa Delta and was initiated into our alpha class in 2013. Kappa Delta has changed my life over the past four years in ways I never thought possible. Still, to this day, Kappa Delta teaches me more about myself, the leader I want to be and the future I have after college. To me, Kappa Delta means opportunity. Opportunity to grow into a better person tomorrow than I am standing here, today. Opportunity to better myself individually, academically, professionally, within the community and within my faith. Lastly, opportunity to learn who I am and strive for the person I always dreamed of being. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” We are confident, we are leaders, and we are Kappa Deltas.

Allie Hogan

Hi there! My name is Allie Hogan and I am from Orlando, Florida. I am a sophomore at the University of West Florida majoring in Nursing with a minor in Community Health Promotion. My dream job once I graduate would be to work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Florida Hospital in Orlando. I am huge on family so I spend most of my free time with my family, and go home to Orlando any chance that I get. Other than Kappa Delta I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success. I joined Kappa Delta because that's simply where I found myself fitting in the best. I felt the most comfortable around all of the women in the room and I knew I could see myself growing more than ever from this organization. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would do it a million times in the same way.

With this posistion I have already had the opportunity to see what a difference the little things make for some people, and it has taught me not to take simple things for granted. Kappa Delta has brought me out of my shell more and more each day. I could not be more thankful for this organization and all the people it has brought me.
