WILMINGTON – Wilmington College senior Emily A. Brautigam of Pruden Road, Sidney, is serving as president of the Wilmington College Delta Theta Sigma Lil Sis Sorority.
Brautigam, who is majoring in agriculture and education studies, is a graduate of Fairlawn High School.
DTS Lil Sis was organized in the winter of 1984 and recognized as a student organization on campus in the fall of 1986. The chapter’s main objectives are to develop a strong bond of sisterhood, fellowship, and scholarship, while promoting a professional image of agriculture throughout the Wilmington College campus and community.
The sorority participates in numerous community service activities, such as Relay for Life, Cardboard Village, and Adopt-A-Highway. Each year, this WC organization also sponsors Cincinnati Children’s Hospital through philanthropy. Sorority members help their brother fraternity, Delta Theta Sigma, with their annual lamb, hog, and cattle shows. Other activities that take place with their DTS counterparts include Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, and spring formal.
Although the sorority is agriculturally based, it has members with a wide range of majors including communications, business, and education.
Other organizations Lil Sis members work in conjunction with on campus are Aggies and Collegiate 4-H, Agronomy Club, Delta Tau Alpha Agricultural Honor Society and Order of Omega.
