The Dallas Alumnae Chapter began presenting its first award,initially named The Outstanding Alumna Award, in 1980, and presented the award during each Tri Delta Convention year.  Soon after, it became an annual program.  In 2004 we broadened our recognition by adding 2 new categories, our Pearl Spirit and Pine Tree Community Spirit Awards.  To make it a more cohesive effort, we changed the name for our original award at that time — the Outstanding Alumna Award became the Pansy Spirit Award.

Sixty-four Dallas Tri Deltas have been recognized since the program’s inception, having served our Alumnae Chapter and Fraternity in numerous ways – Alumnae Chapter Officer, Collegiate Chapter Adviser, House Corporation Board member, Tri Delta Antiques Show leadership, Cookies & Castles Chair, Dallas Reference Board member, Fraternity Leadership, Tri Delta Foundation Trustee — and representing 11 different collegiate chapters:  Baylor, Clemson, University of Oklahoma, Ole Miss, SMU, Southwestern, University of Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt.

As a permanent way to acknowledge these women, a plaque listing all recipients is regularly displayed at the SMU Tri Delta House.
