Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy Drive Thru

Today the Knoxville Alumnae Chapter’s Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy girls picked up their program supplies! We’d love to see all of our girls in person as we enrich and enhance their education. We focus on math, science, and technology, their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership, but the work must go on virtually! #ServiceInOurHeart#dstknoxville#DST1913#SRDST
