VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO HONOR THE CHESTER ALUMNAE CHAPTER OF DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INCORPORATED ON THE OCCASION OF THE FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHAPTER'S FOUNDING AND TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE FOR THE FOUR DECADES OF DEDICATED SERVICE GIVEN TO THE CHESTER COMMUNITY.
Whereas, the members of the House of Representatives deem it fitting and proper to pause in their deliberations to applaud the forty years of dedication to charitable works exhibited by the Chester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated; and
Whereas, February 27 marked forty years of service to the people of Chester County by the local chapter, 694, of Delta Sigma Theta. On that day in 1982, Regional Director Dr. Norma Sermon Boyd met thirteen Chester County college-educated women at Pundt's Restaurant to form the chapter. These women were charged to use the organization's Five Point Programmatic Thrust as their guide; and
Whereas, the organization focuses on economic development, educational development, international awareness and involvement, physical and mental health, and political awareness and involvement; and
Whereas, the members of the Chester Alumnae Chapter sought to embody these directives by working with and providing donations to such organizations as the American Cancer Society, Turning Point Ministries, American Heart Association, Battered But Not Broken, and Calvary Baptist Church's and Purity Presbyterian Church's food pantries; and
Whereas, to fulfill the focus of educational development, the chapter also annually provides scholarships to a graduating senior from each of the area's three high schools; and
Whereas, the chapter boasts fifty-three members working tirelessly together through service, scholarship, and social action; and
Whereas, the members of the House of Representatives are grateful for the eleemosynary efforts to which the members of the Chester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated have committed themselves and look forward to hearing of their continued good works. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, honor the Chester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the chapter's founding and express gratitude for the four decades of dedicated service given to the Chester community.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Chester Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
