MTSU Restored as Delta Lambda Chapter
On Saturday, November 14th, 2020, Knight Commander C. Douglas Simmons III (Beta Tau–Mississippi State ’95) re-issued the Delta Lambda Charter to the gentlemen of the Middle Tennessee State University Provisional Chapter. The ceremony and banquet were held at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Since the provisional chapter was established in December 2018, members have been involved in philanthropy and service within the Murfreesboro community and on campus, including organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House Charity, Long Hollow Summer Camp, and volunteering at other local and religious organizations throughout the last several semesters. The chapter as a whole has participated in school-sponsored activities like the Raiderthon fundraiser, benefitting Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, and the IFC’s “Movember” initiative. Recently, the chapter paired with the Eta Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. to raise funds and gather over 100 personal care items for those affected by tornados that struck the Nashville area early this year. The members have completed an estimated 300+ hours of service during their time as a provisional chapter.
Members hold officer positions with organizations including their student ambassador program called “Blue Elite Team” and AFROTC. Members are also actively involved in Club Lacrosse and Hockey. Members participate in student worker positions like Certified Flight Instructors for the Aerospace program. Members have volunteered at various local church camps.
Delta Lambda Chapter was originally established on February 14, 1969.
