JOY IN OUR SISTERHOOD, POWER IN OUR VOICE, SERVICE IN OUR HEARTS.

The Collin County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., was initiated by three Sorors with a passion for Sisterhood and Community Service. These three visionaries were Sorors Angela Woods, Sonya Turner, and Karen Jefferson. Initially, they met in March 2007 to organize community service activities then they began to explore the viability of chartering a chapter in Collin County. They discussed reaching out to the Regional Director to understand the logistics involved in the chartering process.

A subsequent meeting was held on April 3, 2007. During this meeting, Sorors Jefferson, Turner, and Woods worked on drafting letters to Soror Gwendolyn Grant (Southwest Regional Director) and to each local chapter in the DFW Metroplex to inform them of their intent to establish an "effort to charter". This sparked a project plan to develop a comprehensive list of tasks required to obtain a charter. A tentative date was set to host a "chartering interest meeting". An agenda for the interest meeting was defined and tentative next meeting dates agreed upon.

From the charter's inception, these ladies knew that their efforts would require much work. Therefore, over the next month several planning meetings were held and additional Sorors joined the planning. This team included Sorors Angela Woods, Sonya Turner, Karen Jefferson, Andrea Dennis, Kimberly Davis, Cherise Brown, Deidre Marshall and Angela Oates. These ladies became the "Core Team" that would set forth, plans, goals, and activities for future meetings on the subject of chartering a chapter.

Under the guidance of Soror Gwendolyn Grant (Regional Director) and Soror Pamela Rogers (Scholarship and Standards), letters to each of the DFW chapters
were sent and a meeting of the local President's Council was scheduled. After hundreds of emails, phone calls, and meetings, a "Collin County Chartering Effort" was established and communicated to Sorors throughout the Collin County community. On June 24, 2007 at the Benton Pointe Clubhouse in Allen, TX approximately 90 active and inactive Sorors came together to confirm their interest and began the journey towards chartering a chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority in Collin County. From this, the "Effort to Charter in Collin County" was born!

Due the efforts of these three Sorors and the diligence of others, the Collin County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on
March 30, 2008 at the Stonebridge Ranch Country Club in McKinney, Texas under the direction of the Southwest Regional Director, Soror Gwendolyn Grant, Southwest Regional Representative Soror Brittany Bass and then National 1st Vice President, Soror Cynthia M. A. Butler McIntyre.
