Emily Middleton, a member of Alpha Gamma Delta, was recently elected President of DiGamma Kappa at UGA. Emily is a sophomore Journalism major from Cumming, Georgia who got involved with the organization her freshman year. DiGamma Kappa is the nation’s oldest broadcast society, and was established at UGA in 1939. DiGamma Kappa plays a big role in Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and provides members with networking opportunities within the broadcast industry.
Emily previously served as secretary for DiGamma Kappa before becoming president. She is the youngest board member to have ever been elected president, and is the only returning member, as the previous executive board were all seniors. As president, Emily will oversee all the other board members, be the key contact point for members and Grady College, and control the organization factors of daily operation. Emily was also recently selected to be an ambassador for Grady College.
Emily was involved in the Panhellenic community through her role as assistant Panhellenic delegate for Alpha Gamma Delta from 2014-2015. Through DiGamma Kappa, Emily got the opportunity to be an intern for The Dean’s List, which is a company created by a Grady graduate. For her internship, she assists in running the company’s social media accounts and is the director of Twitter. Every three weeks, Emily also travels to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to host a radio show through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. Emily said her favorite part of DiGamma Kappa is getting to meet all the different Grady alumni from across the country. Alpha Gam is so proud of Emily and can’t wait to see what she does as President of DiGamma Kappa!
