It’s International Badge Day! We’re celebrating our sororities and the leadership lessons they gave us. Have any sorority photos of your own?
Sorority: Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.- University of Maryland, College Park (Alma Mater officially on May 20th – WOO HOO!)
Leadership Lesson: The biggest leadership lesson that I have learned over these past months is the ability to realize when you need to encourage others to take initiative and giving credit to those who do not often receive it. As an extrovert, I am usually very passionate and will quickly step up when there is a task at hand. Understanding that leaders also have to realize when they need to step back and let others shine is something that Delta has allowed me to learn. Additionally, Delta has taught me to give credit when due especially to those who usually fly under the radar.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Celebrates Centennial
“Oh, what a wonderful time to be a Delta!” will likely be chanted across the globe in the next week as the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta celebrate 100 years of sisterhood, scholarship, and service. Founded on January 13, 1913, by 22 Howard University women students, Delta Sigma Theta has grown to become the largest predominately African American sorority in the world, with more than 900 chapters in the United States, Germany, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Japan, South Korea, England, Jamaica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
