​​​Huntsville (TX) Alumnae Chapter History

     Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is an organization that was founded on Christian principles; it is ​a group of College educated women committed to the development of its members and a focus on public service in the Black community.  Twelve (12) of those women signed a charter for the Huntsville (TX) Alumnae Chapter on May 17, 1975.  The charters members were:  Vernon Adams Broussard,  Jurell Giliam,  Frankie Gergg Grover, Minnie Hightower, Helen Groves King, Patricia Lowry, Judy Gilliam Lundy, Hattye Palmer Owens, Alice Myers Shields, Anne Ward Sigler, Maggie L, Smith, and Berniece Grace Williams.  

     Through the years Sorors have moved away, some entered the Omega Omega Chapter and for various other reasons, the chapter became inactive. As God would have it Sorors moved back to the area, and along with the Sorors that remained in the area, worked toward reactivation of the Chapter. On November 15, 1997, the Huntsville (TX) Alumnae Chapter was reactivated.  That charter was signed by fifteen (15) Sorors.  Six (6) of the fifteen (15) were Pamela Carey, Helen King, Hattye Owens, Rissie Owens, Berniece Williams and Pamela Williams.

In 1999 the Huntsville (TX) Alumnae Chapter brought seven (7) ladies into the Sorority - "The Creations of Delta."

In 2004 the Chapter was fortunate to bring six (6) more ladies into the Chapter - "The Disciples of Delta." 

     Through the years the Chapter has participated in the DASE (Deltas After School Education), which allowed Sorors to tutor elementary school children after school.  In addition, the Chapter participates in the local Juneteenth and Martin Luther King celebrations.  Each Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Chapter adopts a family and fulfills all of their needs throughout the holiday season (dinner for both occasions and additional food items, along with gifts for the entire family for Chritmas).  We have co-sponsored several events with Kappa Mu (Undergraduaate Chapter of Sam Houston State University inluding HIV/Aids awareness, LUPUS awareness, Voter's Registration Drive and the Delta Academy.
