The Saginaw Valley Classic-An HBCU Experience is scheduled to occur Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 8-10 on the Saginaw Valley State University campus. The program is a collaboration with the divine nine Great Lakes Bay Area Panhellenic Council – a consortium of Black Greek organizations.
“Saginaw Deltas, who attended an HBCU, will be featured in photographs and will have short bios available during the program,” said SAC President Lisa Ingram. “Saginaw Alumnae Chapter (SAC) members also will be easily recognized as they will be dawning sorority emblems and wearing DST attire.”
Sorors Rhonda Farrell Butler and Anita Richardson, who delivering items to the SVSU library for the HBCU display area, were greeted by Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. member Eric Tyson, who presented them each with a rose pinned with a positive affirmation. Tyson said the gesture was part of on-campus fraternity outreach campaign to inspire women.
SAC members also were on hand during a Sept. 8 discussion and will have information about the sorority available during the Friday, Sept. 9 step show.
Sorors also met at a local business, Greeks R Us, to tape a short video presentation which will be shared to highlight the sorority’s national and local history.
The Chapter’s 55th anniversary celebration will be highlighted in an upcoming video and within historical documents on display at the program.
