Kate paid special attention to intellectual advancement. To raise Fraternity academic standards, she introduced the annual Elementary and advanced chapter exams. Kate's term also saw the addition of the Editor of The Key, and the removal of the Position of the Grand Marshal. She was the first chapter member of Upsilon to graduate, and received a diamond badge, which after her death, became the official badge of the President. Since 2000, it now sits on display at Fraternity Headquarters.
