Celebrating Legacies of Scholarship and Service
June 2018 has been month of celebration for Delta Lambda Zeta! We ended out our sorority fiscal year celebrating two legacies -- Scholarship and Service.
Earlier in the month on June 9th, the chapter held its first annual Scholarship Luncheon, where we honored this year's recipients of the following scholarships: the Ermagene Battle Memorial Scholarship, the Delta Lambda Zeta Scholarship, and the inaugural Aydela M. Bright Educational Foundation Scholarship. Members of the community joined us to honor our three recipients, including former Tift County High graduate and Keynote Speaker, Ms. Tammy Hester, and Sports Director for WALB, Mr. Theo Dorsey. The event was highlighted by a wonderful luncheon menu provided by BJ Smith Catering & Events. A wonderful time was had by all who attended, and we are proud to continue the legacy of #Scholarship established by the Founders of our illustrious sisterhood almost 100yrs ago... congratulations to our recipients!!
Delta Lambda Zeta closed the fiscal year with the rechartering of the Tifton Zeta Amicae Auxiliary! This is such an exciting accomplishment, as the Zeta Amicae have a rich history as the FIRST auxiliary established for any historically black Greek-letter organization. Established in 1948, the Zeta Amicae, known as the "Friends of Zeta", have helped to further the goals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc on a global scale, assisting with community service endeavors that have enriched communities across the United States, Germany, Japan, and beyond! The Tifton Zeta Amicae are no exception, initially charted in 1955, with a rich history of service to Tift County and its surrounding communities. On June 30th, a group of determined women committed to reigniting the flame of #Service and re-charted the auxiliary amidst Sorors and Amicae from across the state of Georgia. We welcome these ladies into the fold of the Blue & White Family, and are excited as these women hit the ground running!!
The 2017-2018 fiscal year has certainly been a "Year of Momentum" for Delta Lambda Zeta, and we are poised for a "Year of Jubilee" as our chapter enters the 2018-2019 fiscal year, celebrating 70 years of #Finer as the chapter moves toward its 70th Anniversary. Stay tuned for more exciting news...
Signing off for now... remember to always stay FINER!!
