100 Years of Service
Aside from continuing the work of Delta, through the numerous outreach programs, demonstrations, public service
activities that were held and volunteering hours that were clocked, 2013 was not on only another year of impact for the
ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. It was also, one of great celebration.
Starting in January, ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. represented their sorority and walked in the Rose Bowl
Parade, becoming the 1st black Greek letter organization to do so. Later that month, Deltas from across the globe
gathered on the campus of Howard University, where it all began, commemorating their centennial anniversary. The
lights illuminating Niagara Falls were turned red in celebration, as well, and an Olympic-like Delta torch was also passed
off throughout the 7 regions, stopping 22 cities of historic significance for the Sorority. In March, sorors did just that.
Reenacting the Women's Suffrage March, the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. marched from the Capitol to
the Washington Monument retracing the footsteps of their Founders and those who marched before them.
Travelling "back home" yet again they filled the streets, restaurants, hotels and convention centers of Washington, DC
in record numbers for their 51st National Convention, this past July. After a week-long of festivities and business,
sorors travelled back home with numerous stories of sisterly love from fellow sorors and the great hospitality of the
residents of Washington, D. C. Amonth these sorors were various members of the Oak Ridge Alumnae Chapter,
each returning in awe from the large numbers, sisterly bonds formed, and overall experience of seeing the work of
"It was a sea of red," was one common phrase used to describe the once-in-a-lifetime event, and was something all Deltas
who attended would cherish. It's always good to be home.
