Members who attended the Spring State Meeting.
The Salisbury Alumnae Chapter attended Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. South Atlantic Region’s North Carolina Spring State Meeting held at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem NC from April 27 – 28, 2018. The Chapter’s president, Natalie Rivers, served as a delegate and the Chapter’s vice president, Dierdra Davis, was the alternate delegate. Several workshops were held focusing on protocol and procedures, membership services, arts & letters, scholarships and standards, health awareness, and nominating. The opening plenary session closed out with a session on Mental Health First aid that focused on developing a mental health toolkit to assist those in mental health crisis. The members in attendance provided community service by making donations to the Union County’s Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, and made a financial contribution to the Guilford County School System to assist with schools and families that were hit by the recent tornado that hit Greensboro.
The chapter recently volunteered in two community service activities. The members volunteered at Rowan Helping Ministries on April 15, 2018 along with Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Several members also volunteered at the annual Livingstone College Book Fair on April 28, 2018.
