The St. Louis Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter was established under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. mantra of sisterhood, service and scholarship on January 11, 1998. A group of forty reclaimed and five active Sorors committed to calling themselves to a "higher order" of purpose.


Armed with a rich legacy, they established a chapter grounded in the spirit of sisterhood, which focuses on leadership development, through the five-point programmatic thrust.   By using creative initiatives they sought to reclaim and retain Sorors in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. "Come Home To Delta and Bring Your Sister With You" is the mantra of the chapter, and this vision for the chapter was given to Soror Cora Cade Lemmon and our Charter Members.


This chapter was established and principled upon educational excellence, public service and leadership development. The chapter provides an extensive array of public services aimed at a five point programmatic thrust (see 'Chapter Programs').


Since its formation, the St. Louis Metropolitan Alumnae Chapter activities have involved Delta members as volunteers in direct services, catalysts for community action, recruiters of interagency support, and leaders in networking and partnership building with other organizations.
