The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy Program Information The DELTA Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young females from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem and crippled futures. The DELTA Academy’s aim is to shape well rounded young women by focusing on African American history, literacy, character development, healthy choices and service learning. Many young ladies have tremendous potential, however they are not afforded the opportunity to broaden themselves, express their curiosity, and experience new and different things early on. The goals for DELTA Academy are: >To promote scholarship in math, science and technology and/or careers where minority women    are scarcely represented; >To increase their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership; >To promote sisterhood defined as the cultivation service learning; and >To promote sisterhood defined as cultivation and maintenance of relationships.

Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta G.E.M.S Program Information The DELTA G.E.M.S. (Developing Effective Leadership Through Achieving, Growing, Empowering Myself Successfully), was established as an extension of the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy I program.

The mission of the DELTA G.E.M.S. is to provide young ladies with a firm structural program that will enhance their self-esteem, academic achievement, leadership skills, and cultural awareness. This, in turn, will provide them with the opportunity to develop emotionally, socially, and intellectually and be prepared to take an active role in their success as they face the challenges of the world. The goals for DELTA G.E.M.S. are: >To promote positive societal interactions; >To develop effective written and oral communication skills; >To encourage self-confidence, self-motivation, and self-discipline; >To foster meaningful public service; including mentoring and networking; >To strive for intellectual enrichment; >To assist with the exploration of various career paths and means for obtaining them (college and/or vocational skills training); >To support talents in academics, technology, sports, and fine arts; and >To maintain moral values and personal pride while experiencing the crossroads of life.

Chapter History

Visionaries in the form of three Sorors (Veronica Renae Crutches, Mechelle B. Hale, Janice L. Jones) sought to form a chapter of our great Sisterhood to serve the communities of Henry County, Georgia.  As one of the fastest growing counties in America from 1999 to 2004, the need for service to our Black communities became increasingly evident. Seeing this great need, these Sorors decided to contact our National Headquarters. They were directed to their local chapter, which included Henry County along with six other counties in their service area.

These energetic Sorors met with the local chapter to discuss various community programs.  They continued to meet with this chapter throughout the sorority year.  However, Henry County was a service area that did not have the much needed visibility from a community and programmatic standpoint. The recent and continued projected growth required a much more direct and focused effort. Sorors Crutches, Hale, and Jones began to discuss the need and feasibility of starting a chapter exclusively in the Henry County area. They identified the needs for this county to be serviced by Delta, and met regularly to develop a strategy and briefing for the sorority’s leadership.

During this time, a steering committee was formed and continued to identify inactive Sorors living and working in Henry County. The steering committee grew to six with the addition of Sorors Gloria A. Lee, Simone W. Morton and Daisey L. Smith and continued to identify more than two hundred sorors in the Henry County area. After months of research, the statistics concluded the enormous growth in the Henry County area needed the presence of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust.

After much hard, steady teamwork, and prayers, the vision became a reality!! The 969th chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  Henry County Alumnae Chapter was chartered on December 4, 2004.
