In the mid-1970s, a number of sorors came together to discuss establishing a chapter in the Talladega County area. Many were traveling to the Anniston Alumnae Chapter in Anniston, Alabama to retain active membership in the sorority. At least twelve sorors were required to charter a chapter at that time. As sorors were identified in the area, twenty-one agreed to the challenge of doing what was necessary to get a chapter chartered in Talladega County. And so, on May 10, 1977, Talladega County Alumnae Chapter was chartered by then Southern Regional Director, Soror Yvonne Kennedy, who later became the 19th National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and served in that capacity from 1988-1992. The chapter was chartered under the 16th National President, Soror Thelma Thomas Daley, who served from 1975-1979.

 

With public service as the mission of our sisterhood, the chapter strives to structure activities that will meet the challenges that are handed down from Grand Chapter through the Five-Point Programmatic Thrust and provide whatever service is necessary to meet local needs in the Talladega County Area Community.
