On February 8, 2007, the Lovely Sisterhood of Chi Delta Sigma Sorority was founded at WSU, Pullman campus. These three ladies who advocated to provide a communal space for AAPI womxn within the community and Greek system, soon became our founding mothers; Mother Nicole Crebillo, Mother Jacqueline Balatbat, and Mother Noelle Valbuena. On June 8, 2007, Chi Delta Sigma became established within the existing Greek community, The United Greek Council at WSU. In the fall of 2008, the three founders brought in their first class of sisters who shared similar values and goals reflecting the pillars of the lovely sisterhood: Academic Excellence, Leadership, Awareness, Diversity, and Sisterhood.
This was only the beginning for this lovely sisterhood to unite womxn who identified as Asian and Pacific Islander. It was their vision to further promote AAPI culture, provide a safe space for womxn to grow as leaders, and to create a lasting bond between ladies during their academic journey and beyond.
