Shannon Hamilton, President of Gamma Xi Chapter (NMSU), is supported by her sisters to do great things

Shannon Hamilton joined the Gamma Xi Chapter at New Mexico State University (NMSU) in the Fall of 2013. "Delta Zeta has taught me many things," she said, "from serving selflessly to how to enjoy time with my sisters. My college experience has been enhanced by being a Delta Zeta."

Shannon is the 2016 President of Gamma Xi, but has recently become the Vice President of the NMSU Athletic Training Association. She has found support from her Delta Zeta sisters as she assumed this important role.

"I have been given a support system of women who motivate me to do better in every aspect of my life," said Shannon. "Delta Zeta has inspired me to be the best self that I can be. I have taken on leadership within my chapter and through the university, my studies have improved, and my attitude towards life has shifted to become more positive.

"Between juggling my obligations as President and fulling my duties as an athletic training student, I find time to spend quality time with my sisters. With all that I do on a day-to-day basis, my motivation comes from my Delta Zeta sisters and the Delta Zeta Creed: 'To those whom my life may touch in slight measure, may I give graciously of what is mine.'

"Life can get stressful and hectic sometimes, but the Creed is what inspires me to do more for others, be patient, and love steadfastly. This is why I have never given up. Those few words in the Creed give me a picture of how I may prove to be a worthy Delta Zeta. This is how I, Shannon Hamilton, wear the Delta Zeta badge with pride and live to be a legacy of the Gamma Xi Chapter at New Mexico state University."
