EarHustle411 occasionally deems an individual or group as a Chicago Mover and Shaker. We are proud to give that honor to a group of women who has been doing great things in the community in and around the Chicago Area. Delta Sigma Chicago Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated led by their chapter Basileus (President) Tonia Havard-Dew who has been a member of the organization for several years and has a love for serving the community and an even greater love for the ladies of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
The Sorors of Delta Sigma has been working diligently all year collecting school supplies and book bags in support of the Organization’s national service project Operation Big Bookbag. This service project designed for organization chapters to donate school supplies to local schools prior to the beginning of the school year. In past experiences, chapters have learned that the need is not just at the beginning of the school year and several chapters has expanded their giving of supplies to include giving after the new year.
Joining Delta Sigma on the parade route are Sorors from various chapters like Theta Chi Sigma Alumnae Chapter (Oak Park, IL), Eta Xi Sigma Alumnae Chapter (Oak Lawn, IL) including the members of the organization’s leadership team.
Central Region 21st Syntaktes (President) Soror Tiffany Hightower, member of Eta Xi Sigma as well as the organization’s International Grand Basileus (National President) Soror Bonita M Herring, member of Delta Sigma came out and gave their support of the service project and to Delta Sigma’s efforts in serving the youth.
Sigma Gamma Rho has been consumed, overwhelmed as well as grief-stricken about the loss of Soror Sandra Bland. Participating in the parade and getting back to serving the community was a welcomed break . Sandra’s death shook the entire organization’s spirit to the core. However, under the leadership of Soror Havard-Dew, she has charged the members of Delta Sigma chapter to commit to serving the community in an unrestricted capacity regardless of what is going on in the streets because at the end of the day the children are part of those communities in which the chapter serves and they deserve a fair shot at a better life.
EarHustle411 appreciates Delta Sigma Chicago Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. for all that they do for those who have a hard time doing for themselves. We salute you and you are truly a Chicago Mover and Shaker!!
