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.
