Following the COVID-19 guidelines, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. would only allow virtual presentations. Hopefully, when guidelines are lifted, the present and past Jabberwock courts will participate in local parades and activities. Even though things had to be handled differently, it was still a blessed and lovely evening with beautiful queens and princesses.
The funds raised from the pageant are earmarked for scholarships and public service projects. The proceeds are also used to maintain Delta Sigma Theta’s FIVE POINT PROGRAMMATIC THRUST-Educational Development, Economic Development, Physical and Mental Health, Political Awareness and Involvement, and International Awareness and Involvement.
Minden Alumnae Chapter President Yolanda D. Smith and members would like to thank the community for their support. The Jabberwock committee chairs were Felica Harris and Lakesha Manning.
