Delta line marks 20-year anniversary with community service

Members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Gamma Lambda Chapter took part in three community service projects during Johnson C. Smith University homecoming weekend to celebrate the group’s 20th “Deltaversary.”

The fall 1995 line of the Gamma Lambda Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. celebrated its 20th “Deltaversary” during Johnson C. Smith University’s homecoming last weekend.

Line members volunteered at three local institutions — JCSU career workshop, Crisis Assistance Ministry and Second Harvest Food Bank — as part of a community service project. They also gave more than $2,000 in scholarships.

“It truly was a weekend of sisterhood, scholarship and service,” said Traci Benjamin, who chaired the anniversary celebrations.
