2023                                 We will celebrate 110 years of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., 100 years of the Legendary Ruby Dee, and 

                                          The 10 year anniversary of AN ANTHOLOGY OF SISTERHOOD!!!!!

2022                                 In October we recognized the 100th Birthday of Soror Ruby Dee. DREF and the Arts and Letters Committee of                                             Eastern Region held a program and fundraiser to help continue the funding for our scholarship. Our fourth 

                                         "Centennial Scholarship Recipient" is Soror Dawn Belton, a theater major at Bowie State University.

2021                                 Our third scholarship recipient Victoria Williams was our first Soror and first Graduate Student to win the

                                         scholarship. Victoria was an Opera major and was continuing her graduate degree at Univeristy of

                                         District Columbia in Washington D.C.

                                          received $1,000 from the Ruby Dee Legacy of Sisterhood Scholarship. Our nation experienced a pandemic a

                                          and we were unable to present the award face to face but hosted a Virtual Celebration.
