About Hall County Alumnae

The Hall County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on March 31, 2001, in Gainesville, Georgia, by 19 Deltas who felt it was time for their community to benefit from the services that the sisterhood of Delta Sigma Theta had to offer. The efforts to bring together Deltas in the area began several years before the actual chartering; however, in March of 2001, the vision of becoming a chapter became a reality.

The chartering members were Evelyn Brown, Vallorie Coley, Erica Glenn, Roosevetta Johnson, Deborah Mack, Gloria Maddox, Wanda McRae, Angela Middleton, Gwendolyn Morris, Arbra Prather, Georgette Riggans, Deborah Rucker, Nell Rucker, Eleanor Sanders, Tena Sewell, Mary Smith, Genelda Stovall, Anissa Truesdale, and Tracey Wilson.

Since the chapter’s chartering, the members have worked diligently to serve the community with innovative programs and projects. Each year, the chapter implements a full program agenda that reflects each aspect of the Sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust.  Some of Hall County Alumnae Chapter’s past projects/programs include the Black History Quiz Bowl, Luggage for Foster Care, Voter Education/Registration, HIV/AIDS Awareness, and participation in the Back-to-School Round Up sponsored by the Gateway Women’s Shelter.  Monetary contributions were made to programs in South Africa, North East Georgia Medical Center Foundation and the Restoration Preservation Society.  Since chartering, the chapter has sponsored scholarship fundraisers.  The proceeds have provided scholarships and book stipends to area high school seniors.
