President’s Message


On behalf of the officers and members of the Leesburg Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., we welcome you to our website! We’re a chapter with an “Uncompromising Commitment to Communities” through Service, Leadership, and Empowerment. The Leesburg Alumnae Chapter (LAC) was chartered on June 9, 1977 and has been serving the Lake and Sumter County community for nearly 40 years.  As a thriving organization, we are committed to the vision of the 22 illustrious Founders of this sisterhood by continuing to:

Lead local programs and initiatives,

Advocate for important issues

Collaborate with like-minded organizations.

We are a sisterhood whose bond is made stronger through community service. We remain steadfast, devoted, guided by scholarship and public service, and rooted in Christian principles. Through the hard work and dedication of our chapter members, we strive to implement new initiatives established by the organization’s national leadership, not forgetting the concerns of the past, but focusing on the future to meet the ever-growing challenges that affect our communities. We are here to serve our community through our Scholarship, DR. JLN Delta GEMS, and our Five Point Programmatic Thrust:

Economic Development

Educational Development

International Awareness and Involvement

Physical and Mental Health

Political Awareness and Involvement

As a Chapter, we will always hold on to the belief that, “it’s not about us it’s about our service to others.” LAC has accomplished much but we still have so much more to be done.   With your continued support of our programs and projects we will continue to have a positive impact on our community.

We appreciate you taking the time to browse our website in an effort to learn more about our various programs, projects and events. It is my hope that we can partner with other organizations to increase our service reach. Although LAC is a small chapter, we are committed to hard work and will continue to diligently serve our community. If you are a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and are looking for a home chapter, we encourage you to visit with us at a chapter meeting or an event.

Yours in Sisterhood and Service,

Janet H. Connelly

President, Leesburg Alumnae Chapter
