JSU'S Delta Sigma Theta Honored for Community Service

1 February 2005 — The Higher Education Partnership (HEP) has recognized Jacksonville State University’s Delta Sigma Theta sorority for outstanding contributions to the community for their program called Passport to Womanhood, which was conducted in connection with the Student Government Association.

The project assisted local girls between the ages of six and 13 by providing information about goal-setting, hygiene, dating, and other life issues.

Delta Sigma Theta was among 11 groups honored at HEP’s recent Future Leaders of Higher Education banquet in Montgomery. Gordon Stone, executive director of HEP, said the award winners "represent excellent examples of the universities’ value to the quality of life in this state."

Students from HEP’s local committees, known as the STARS committees, conferred the honor on the organizations “that went above and beyond the call of duty to help ‘make a difference,’” said Stone.

According to HEP, the 11 awards represented more than 2,200 lives being directly impacted by the community service of the students.
