The Little Rock Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated had its birth as a mixed chapter on March 28, 1942. The chapter’s first name was Gamma Gamma mixed Chapter and included students from Philander Smith College and graduate Deltas in the city of Little Rock. When Philander Smith College became fully accredited the president of the college requested that the undergraduates become a separate campus-based organization. On April 6, 1950 two separate chapters were established. Gamma Gamma became the collegiate chapter and the graduate chapter was renamed Delta Epsilon Sigma. In 1956, Delta Epsilon Sigma was renamed the Little Rock Alumnae Chapter. The chapter has been serving communities in the central Little Rock area guided by the vision of 24 outstanding presidents, for 79 years. 

Our focus is to reignite, realign, and rededicate the chapter to our sorority's mission. A clear and concise strategic plan has been developed to assist our chapter in fulfilling this vision. We work together to embrace our differences and use our skills and talents to collectively impact our city, state, region, and nation!


Thank you for visiting our site! Join us as we get back to the basics while we strive for progress over perfection.

Sincerely,

Tonya D. Middleton
Chapter President
