In 1967, an Icelandic girl who was finishing her studies at the University of Iceland applied for a Fulbright Scholarship to study in the USA. She received a World Fellowship Award from Delta Kappa Gamma and was accepted to Wayne State University in Detroit. Her name is Sigrún Klara Hannesdóttir. At that time, she did not know anything about Delta Kappa Gamma—she was simply told that they would be financing her studies. But later she learned all about our Society-- and more.
In November 2017, Dr. Sigrún Klara received an invitation from the Fulbright Foundation in Iceland to attend a reception linked to their Thanksgiving dinner. People from the American Embassy also attended this celebration to honor those who had a Fulbright anniversary. Sigrún Klara was the oldest recipient because it had been 50 years since she received the World Fellowship Scholarship.
