Game Night

The Salisbury Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta recently held a weekend celebration to culminate their 2017 fiscal year.

A Game Night of fun, food and fellowship was held at the home of Wendy Baskins. The sorority held their ritualistic closing ceremony and elected new officers. Natalie Rivers was elected as the new president. She will begin her duties in September. Other 2017-18 chapter officers include Deirdre Davis, Vice President; Tameka Brown, Recording Secretary; Tiffany Mack, Corresponding Secretary; Sharon Marsh, Financial Secretary; Delphine McCullough, Assistant Financial Secretary; Leigh Ellington, Treasurer; Dionne Gilmore, Assistant Treasurer; Rachel Hunter, Sergeant-at-Arms; Dora Wood, Parliamentarian; and Burnetta Maske, Chaplain.

The sorority also sponsored their first annual Scholarship Golf Tournament at The Crescent. A total of 48 golfers participated. All money donated, collected and raised will be used to award graduating high school seniors’ scholarships to be used toward their freshman year at college.

The Salisbury Sorority chapter is committed to promote academic excellence by providing scholarships to all six areas high schools and to the early college. In addition to monetary support, the Ladies of Delta continue to support the underserved, to educate and stimulate participation through positive public policy, and to highlight issues and provide solutions for problems in our community. The major programs of the sorority are based upon a Five Point Programmatic Thrust: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.
