Chapter History


Plans for the chapter's organization began in the spring of 1949. The first Greek letter organization among Negro citizens in High Point's history was charted December 3, 1949. The establishment of Alpha Omega Sigma Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. materialized with the chartering ceremony, which took place at the Daniel Brooks Center on Saturday, January 21, 1950.


In charge of the ceremony was Soror Muriel Johnson, Eastern Regional Director. Assisting Soror Johnson were Soror Mary Spellman, from Glen Bernie, MD; Soror Nell Coley, President of Beta Mu Sigma Chapter, Greensboro, NC; Soror Beulah Jones, President of Iota Sigma Chapter, Hampton, VA; and Soror G. Cunningham, President of Beta Xi Sigma Chapter, Charlotte, NC.


Initiation ceremonies were held also and Lindell Parr was inducted into the new chapter. A Founders Day Banquet was held at the Mary McLeod Bethune Branch YWCA following the formal ceremonies. The speaker of the evening was Soror Muriel Johnson who spoke from the subject: The Responsibility of Deltas in 1950.
