Join us in congratulating Annie Hollings!
The Knoxville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has partnered with the League of Women Voters of Knoxville/ Knox County for the City Council Candidate Forum on Thursday, July 29, 2021, from 6:30-8:30 pm at the YMCA Phyllis Wheatley Center.
This event is free and open to the public.
The Knoxville Alumnae Chapter honored our “Dedicated – Energetic – Active – Respected – Sorors” better known as Delta DEARS this weekend. DEARS are members of Delta Sigma Theta’s sisterhood who have been blessed to reach the golden age of 62 years. The KAC Delta DEAR Tea was filled with sweet moments, surprise gifts and lunch on us! It might have been virtual but you could feel the love in the “room.” Oh, to be a Delta!
Our fabulous Membership Services committee coordinated contactless drive thru pickup of Delta DEAR gifts. Divas and Dolls picked up the bags and delivered them to the doorstep of their DEARS.
The smiles on the KAC Delta DEARS were priceless when they FINALLY could see what was in their bag during the virtual tea!
Sisterhood can’t be stopped. Avis Andrews-Gary is visiting family but brought her red so she could celebrate with her DEAR sisters!
Christina Goode is new to the Delta DEAR circle and got to celebrate with her newly initiated legacy, Christiana.
Veronica Smith enjoyed her first KAC DEAR Tea. She’s new to Knoxville Alumnae after moving to Knoxville from Miami Alumnae Chapter.
Long-time KAC member, Eddie Mae Robinson, who will be turning 100 this summer, joined her Delta DEAR sisters on the phone from Maryland!
Thank you Membership Services for honoring our Delta DEARS!

Redistricting: Draw the Lines Fairly
POWER IN OUR VOICE: Today our focus is on REDISTRICTING!
What is it? Why does it matter? Why you should pay attention and take action!
Delta Sigma Theta is synonymous with social action. Understanding topics like redistricting helps all of us keep power in our communities.
Crimson Conversations: relax, relate, release with mental health and mindfulness tips. Coping skills help you tolerate, minimize, and deal with stressful situations in life. Managing your stress well can help you feel better physically and psychologically and it can impact your ability to perform your best. (Very Well Mind)
