The Tyler Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. will celebrate its 80th anniversary in November. Chartered in 1942, Tyler Alumnae has diligently worked to fulfill the sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrusts: economic development, educational development, physical and mental health development, international awareness and involvement, and political awareness and involvement. The chapter’s 80 years of existence has yielded annual scholarships to young women enrolling in college, school supplies for TISD, annual visits to our local nursing homes, along with development opportunities for Tyler’s young ladies aged 11-18 years through our Delta Academy & Delta GEMS programming.

As the chapter reflects on its 80 years of service, we remain committed to serving our region for many years to come.”
