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.
The mission of Collin County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is to:
Through a spirit of sisterhood, we will maintain unity with our local chapters and Grand Chapter while remaining focused on the Cardinal Virtues and spiritual principles upon which our Sorority was founded.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. is a private, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to provide assistance and support through established programs in local communities throughout the world. Since its founding more than 200,000 women have joined the organization. The organization is a sisterhood of predominantly Black, college educated women. The sorority currently has 1,000 collegiate and alumnae chapters located in the United States, England, Japan (Tokyo and Okinawa), Germany, the Virgin Islands, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Jamaica and the Republic of Korea.
