OUR HISTORY

The Columbus (GA) Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was originally chartered as Harris County Alumnae Chapter on February 2, 1970, at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. After considering the high concentration of Deltas in this area, thirteen Sorors dedicated themselves to forming a new alumnae chapter. 

 

 

The Columbus Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter owes a debt of gratitude to these forward-thinking women who laid the foundation for our chapter:

 Augalus Turk
 Jean C. Porch
 Sherry Taylor Thomas
 Jacqueline Thomas
 Annie L. Green
 Alma Goodwin
 Vivian Freeman (Deceased)
 Phoebe Dawson
 Edna Whaley Valentine
 Janie J. Williams (Deceased)
 Vivian Williams
 Dorothy Willoughby
 Ann A. Wright


Soror Fannye Harris was the Southern Regional Director at the time the chapter was chartered.  After nine years of successfully fostering the ideas and principles of Delta Sigma Theta in this area, membership increased to include sorors from the surrounding areas. Because of this growth and demographic changes, the chapter was renamed the Columbus Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. on December 4, 1979, and has been active in this extended community ever since. As a group of college-educated, professional women, Columbus Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter is committed to sharing our many talents and skills with the community. Our service area includes Columbus and Harris County, Georgia; Phenix City, and Russell County, Alabama.
