HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University senior Kali Johnson of Baton Rouge has been selected to participate in the 2010-2011 class of Leadership DELTA, a model program designed to develop a pool of outstanding African American female college leaders.
A mass communication and journalism student, Johnson currently serves as president of the Nu Delta Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority at Southeastern. She will attend the leadership conference in Detroit, Mich. from Oct. 14-17.
Leadership DELTA is sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and General Electric for African American collegiate members of the organization. Participants are selected from applicants who must have at least a 3.2 grade point average with active membership in the sorority. Participants engage in a variety of activities designed to increase their leadership skills. They are paired with a mentor who guides them in career development and have opportunities to meet with outstanding African American women in their field of study.
“Kali is independent and strong willed and has an unwavering work ethic,” said sorority adviser Sandy Summers. “Her dedication to academics and community service enhance her leadership skills and has certainly prepared her for this awesome opportunity.”
In addition to her sorority activities, Johnson is a member of the Southeastern Chapter of the NAACP, Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society, Southeastern’s honors organization the Thirteen Club, Louisiana Youth Advisory Team and the Young Democrats of Louisiana. She is a graduate of Baton Rouge Magnet High School and is the daughter of Hosea and Sandra Johnson.
