I was initiated into Alpha Xi Delta in 1971. I had just started college, and the whole pledge scene was an awesome experience for me. My school friend, Cathy Spera, was with me, too.
I met my maid of honor, Allison Young, through Alpha Xi Delta, but of course, she says that she was my flower girl to this day! In my family, my own sister was some 16 years younger than me, so it meant so much to have sisters closer to my age to experience life with. The togetherness meant a lot to me. Through opportunities with other sororities/fraternities I met the love of my life, Johnny Huff, who was by my side for 39 wonderful years. He liked having so many females to be included in his life, too.
I still remember the goosebumps we would all get when we did our ceremonies and songs. Thanks Alpha Xi Delta for being a large part of my life!
