Red carpet rolls at Mighty Midwest regional in Minneapolis

The mighty Midwest Region rolled out the red carpet for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (DST’s) 50th Midwest Regional Conference, which was themed “Where Purple Reigns. Over 2000 sorors, from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Ontario, West Virginia, and Wisconsin attended this year’s conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

On behalf of Saginaw Alumnae Chapter (SAC) members, I extend many thanks to the Midwest Regional Director Sarahjini Nunn and Regional Representative Erin Smith for their leadership,” SAC President Lisa Ingram said.

Ingram also extended praise to all involved in planning this year’s conference for a job well done and said, “SAC was excited to be in fellowship during every aspect of the conference, which was well planned and executed.”

Ingram also applauded the newly elected Midwest Regional Director Brittani Blackwell (Southfield Alumnae) and Midwest Regional Representative Aleyah Oliver (Epsilon Omicron), Midwest Regional Representative Erin Smith, Regional Director Sarahjini Nunn Spencer, and the entire Collegiate Day Planning Committee for work with Midwest Region collegiate sorors to prepare them for college and sorority activities during this upcoming year.

“The insights and inspiration of the Honorable Marcia L. Fudge and the Honorable Joyce Beatty, who had the privilege to speak at the DST Social Action Luncheon, also were greatly appreciated,” Ingram said. “Sorors engaged in discussions and fellowship with one another to amplify the mission our Founders.”

Luncheon topics ranged from voter suppression and police accountability to women’s reproductive rights to maternal health. Greater Cleveland Alumnae and Eastern Panhandle Alumnae won 1st Place in the Political Awareness and Involvement category during the luncheon.

“The entire conference was an incredible experience and I extend a special thanks to all SAC members who participated in person and to sorors who attended remotely,” Ingram said.
