Jaclyn Pullen


Hi! I am so excited for the privilege to serve again on Chapter Council as President of the Gamma Delta Chapter. I am honored to be able to work with the amazing girls elected into Council, and to see what they all do to further the values of Kappa. Last year, I was elected as House Chairman, which helped me grow with my communication skills, time management, dedication, and love for Kappa. I am hoping that this year I can utilize those skills in my new role, and grow even more! I plan to uphold the Kappa standards and values, as well as work to create a consistency and expectancy amongst our chapter. I hope that my love for Kappa is shown through the work I do with our chapter. I am currently a Junior studying Public Relations and Strategic Communications here at Purdue, which will help me apply what I am learning to Kappa and gain real life experience from Kappa for my major. I am thrilled for this upcoming year, and I am confident in this Chapter Council!

Christine Cunningham

Vice President Standards

I am a junior in the Doctor of Pharmacy program here at Purdue. I am so excited to have the privilege to serve on Chapter Council for a second term. Last year, I served as the risk management chair where I learned time management skills, effective planning, and how to be detail-oriented. I can’t wait to take these skills and put them to use in the Vice President Standards position. As Vice President Standards, I am planning to improve house morale, work on being consistent within the chapter to hold girls accountable for their actions, and also serve as a role model and resource to younger girls on Chapter Council. I am so excited to watch everyone grow this next year and continue to push Kappa in a positive direction. I can’t wait to work with you all and see what is in store for the Gamma Delta chapter this year!
