Delta Gamma Lectureship in Values & Ethics

I

n 1992, the Delta Gamma Lectureship in Values & Ethics was established through Dr. Paul Martin honoring his wife Dorothy Garrett Martin (Dotty), Eta-Akron, by donating $50,000 challenge grants in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. The Martins had one main vision: to establish a venue on college campuses where values & ethics could be discussed in an open format. In 2005, the Gamma Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma at Louisiana State University established our Lectureship by presenting a $100,000 check to the LSU Foundation to begin our lectureship fund & start planning for our first speaker. Previous Lectureships hosted by Delta Gamma include: Aron Ralston, best-selling author & inspiration for the fivetime Academy Award nominated film “127 Hours” in 2011, & Steve Ford, actor & son of President Gerald Ford in 2008. s one of only 18 Delta Gamma chapters & university campuses in North America to make this commitment to have an open forum for the discussion of values and ethics, our chapter is honored to bring this opportunity to the LSU & Baton Rouge community. Your attendance & support is greatly appreciated.

he women of the Gamma Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma carry out the Delta Gamma motto to “do good” in our support of the mission of the Delta Gamma Foundation and Service for Sight. Delta Gamma works to promote sight preservation and assistance to children and adults who are blind or visually impaired. At LSU this includes volunteering with the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired (LSVI), driving a member of our community who is blind home from work every day, and countless other service events including LSU Fan Day in which students from LSVI get to meet LSU student athletes. Over the last year, the LSU chapter has raised almost $40,000 to help benefit the Delta Gamma Foundation and organizations who share our sight-related mission.
