Dec. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. -- Within three years of its chartering Loudoun County Alumnae Chapter (LCAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is marking a major milestone.  The young chapter recently welcomed its 100th member.  LCAC, which provides assistance and support through established programs throughout Loudoun County, was formed in 2009 with 41 members.  It is among 980 chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a private, non-profit organization with more than 200,000 members worldwide.  

“Meeting this 100th milestone is particularly significant because it comes in the wake of our national organization’s 100th anniversary,” noted LCAC President Linda Griffin.  Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 13, 1913.  The organization kicks off a year-long centennial celebration with a float in the Rose Bowl parade on January 1; followed by a full slate of national and local activities and events that will culminate at a week-long convention in Washington, D.C.

Making a visible difference in Loudoun County is LCAC’s theme and members are regularly seen working in the community.  The ladies in red, as they’re often referred, were instrumental in registering over 1,600 new voters in the area; raising $5,000 to support breast cancer research, ranking it among the top 10 non-profit fund-raisers for the Washington, D. C. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure; establishing Delta Academy, a program for middle school girls aimed at strengthening their self esteem and building interests in science, technology, engineering and math; hosting an annual event designed to build opportunities and leadership skills for young African American males; and raising over $25,000 to support Loudoun County community programs.  

Complete information about LCAC’s programs and activities is available on the chapter’s website:  www.lcacdst.org.
