Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc
In the Winter of 1975, a small group of graduate Sorors met at the home of Charlotte Pazant Bailey to discuss plans for the establishment of an alumnae chapter in Beaufort. The members invited Sorors from Jasper County to join them in their efforts. They continued to meet during the Spring of 1976 to complete the desire to establish an alumnae chapter. Their dream was realized when the Beaufort Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. was chartered on June 19, 1976 with sixteen members. The chartering ceremony was held at the Beaufort County Department of Education with Soror Louise Reddick, then Director of the South Atlantic Region officiating.
