Here in Zeta Tau Alpha, our parents are very important to us! We love to share why ZTA is so special to us on Family Weekend. Every year, we hold the tradition of our Mother's Pinning. It is a beautiful ceremony where we include our mothers in our sisterhood. It is an opportunity in which our moms get a glimpse of what our rituals are like. Initiated members pin them with a turquoise and silver crown with a white violet embossed upon it to remind them that they are still the most important women in our lives. Our sisters are special to us, but it is because of our mothers that we are the women we are today.
