Greetings Sorors and Friends:
On behalf of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (DST), Saginaw Alumnae Chapter (SAC), it is my pleasure to welcome you to our digital home. This year, the Chapter is celebrating 55 years of distinguished service and impactful achievement in the Saginaw/Bay community. I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as the 30th president of this outstanding chapter.
Through the bonds of sisterhood, DST was founded to bring women together –as sisters– to change and benefit the lives of individuals within society through collective social action.
On October 28, 1967 twelve young ladies decided to recommit themselves to the ideals and mission of our sisterhood by chartering the Saginaw Alumnae Chapter. During the past 55 years, we have initiated nearly 100 members into our local Chapter. As sisters, we have worked together to provide vital resources for the community.
Our goal is to expand our footprint and empower the Saginaw Community through strategic planning, civic engagement, and the power of sisterhood. To this end, SAC’s biennial theme for 2022-2024 is “Embracing Sisterhood: 55 Years Elevating, Impacting and Empowering Our Youth and Community.”
As we continue to serve and honor the legacy of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Service and Social Action, which we began 55-years-ago, we invite you to partner with us on this journey to make an even more significant contribution within the Saginaw/Bay community.
Please visit our website frequently, follow us on social media, and explore our online news and events, along with SAC calendar posts, for opportunities to partner with us and to support DST SAC programs and events.
Lisa Ingram, President
Saginaw Alumnae Chapter
