Congratulations To Our Debutante Gwendolyn Renee Smith Being the first of anything has its privileges and pressures. As the first – and only – daughter and sister, we have watched you experience first steps, first baptism, first driver’s license, first date, first job and so many other firsts with grace and determination. Our prayer is that you always face your other “firsts” with that same positive spirit. Being a Christian also has its privileges and pressures. We are very proud that you try to stand up for what you believe in and continue to grow your faith. Our prayer is that you always find a church that will help you grow and surround yourself with people who will encourage you. We are blessed to have you as a daughter and big sister, We love you and pray that you always feel our love! Mommy, Daddy, K. J. and Elijah


Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated Charlotte Alumnae Chapter PO Box 32231 • Charlotte, NC 28232 April 19, 2014 Greetings! It is my honor to bring you warmest greetings on behalf of the members of the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. We welcome you to our Fiftieth Annual Debutante Cotillion. Thank you for your presence as we recognize and introduce Delta Debutantes: “Now, Then & Forever. Legends & Legacies” - the 50th Debutante Cotillion. Congratulations and best wishes to our lovely Debutantes! Tonight we conclude our 2013-2014 Cotillion Season. You have spent the past few months making preparations for this evening. It has been a pleasure for our chapter members to work with such a talented, intelligent, and delightful group of young women. We hope that the memories from the Get Acquainted Activity, Dance rehearsals, MLK Parade, special events for the mothers and fathers, new friendships that you have gained and countless hours of community service will remain with you forever. The members of the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter thank you for the opportunity to make a positive impact. A special thank you is extended to the parents of our Debutantes, Marshals, as well as other relatives and friends. This night would not have been a success without your support, commitment and participation. Thank you parents, for sharing your daughter with us during this most memorable senior year. Delta Sigma Theta is a non-profit organization. Because of the generous support of our advertisers, sponsors and patrons in the Souvenir Book, our chapter is able to continue to provide scholarships for the Debutantes. In addition, your generosity allows us to contribute charitable contributions for local agencies and organizations that support Delta’s Five Point Programmatic Thrust: Educational Development, Economic Development, Physical and Mental Health, International Awareness and Involvement, and Political Awareness and Involvement. We thank you for your support and encourage you to support the businesses and community organizations listed in the Souvenir Book. The Debutante season is really a yearlong project. We are blessed to have three chairpersons and a team of committee members to organize and implement the entire program. Thank you my sisters! We sincerely appreciate all the hard work. Again, congratulations 2014 Debutantes and enjoy the Cotillion! Sincerely Yours,

Desiree Rew, President Charlotte Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated

Greetings,

It is with great excitement that I welcome each and every one of you to the 2014 Delta Debutante Cotillion. It’s an exciting time as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Cotillion. Since 1964, the Delta Debutante Cotillion, which is the first of its kind in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area, has played a significant role in our community. As the theme, “Now, Then & Forever. Legends & Legacies” suggests, the cotillion has cultivated a rich history and legacy of grooming and presenting smart, talented and beautiful young ladies each year. As an organization whose mission is to strengthen the community be implementing and supporting programs that improve the quality of life for women and their families in the greater Charlotte region, the Deltas of Charlotte Foundation is honored to co-sponsor this event with the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. We are very thankful to all involved in the planning of this event. Thank you to the parents, marshals and to the cotillion committee. A special thank you to the sponsors and patrons for your continued support. A portion of the proceeds from tonight’s event will be used for scholarships and donations. Again, welcome to the 50th Annual Cotillion “Now, Then, and Forever. Legends and Legacies”. May each of you have a fantastic and memorable evening! Sincerely,

Tarina S. Pettiway Chair Deltas of Charlotte Foundation

Greetings to the Debutantes of 2014 Tonight is your special night. It is the culmination of our time together through the 2013-2014 Cotillion activities. We have enjoyed getting to know you and working with you. The theme “Now, Then & Forever. Legends & Legacies� is quite appropriate for such intelligent and talented young women. You have impressed us with your drive and your promise, as current and future leaders of your schools and our communities. We have been blessed by our interaction with you, your parents and marshals. We are extremely honored, to present you to the Charlotte Community, at our 50th Annual Debutante Cotillion. It is our sincere desire that this experience has provided you with opportunities to grow and develop culturally, educationally and personally. We hope that you will treasure the new friendships and relationships that you have formed over the last seven months. May you continue to grow, mature and meet future opportunities just as you have enthusiastically embraced the Cotillion activities during this season. The Cotillion Committee wishes to express our sincerest gratitude and love to you for choosing to be a part of this year’s 50th Anniversary Cotillion Celebration. Parents, thank you for sharing your daughters with us; and for the love, guidance and nurturing that is evident in each of these young women. May God continue to bless all of you.

Charlotte Alumnae Chapter Cotillion History In 1963, the Executive Committee of the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter was exploring fundraising ideas for the chapter when Grace Solomon, a chapter officer, conceived the idea of a Cotillion as a fundraiser. Under the leadership of Bertha Maxwell Roddey and Grace Solomon, the first Cotillion took place on April 17, 1964 at the Park Center (now the Grady Cole Center). The chapter presented twenty young ladies that night: Ethel Alexander, Jacqueline Belton, Beatrice Bowser, Nona Byers, Judy Carothers, Mollie Carter, Etta Davidson, Elizabeth Gilmore, Geraldine Grier, Barbara Harris, Claudette Irby, Vernie Johnson, Cynthia Leggett, Adrian McCaskill, Gayle McCombs, Vergie McKinley, Vivian Maxwell, Judy Ratchford, Sarah Ratchford, Vera Watson and Lutricia Wingate. The Cotillion Season spread over several months, as it does now, with the culmination being the Cotillion Ball. Mr. Julian Pyles served as Master of Ceremonies for the 1964 “A Night in Venice� Cotillion and Elaine Brown served as the first choreographer for the Cotillion dances. The legacy continues.

50th Anniversary of Charlotte Alumnae Chapter Debutante Cotillion Cotillion Trivia ' Bertha Roddey and Grace Solomon were the driving forces behind the first Cotillion. ' During the first Cotillion, Charlotte Alumnae Chapter had 44 members. Fifty years later, the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter has 611 members. ' During the early years of the Cotillion, the chapter sponsored a “Dating and Marriage” workshop. ' Until the late 1980s, each Debutante had two marshals. ' For over 35 years, Debutantes participated in a Luncheon Fashion Show. ' Debutante activities during the years have included college tours, cultural activities, father/daughter activities, mother/daughter luncheons, deb/marshal activities, personal branding workshops, etiquette workshops – just to name a few. ' The Cotillion has been held in a number of venues: The Park Center (now known as the Grady Cole Center), the Sheraton Hotel, the Westin hotel, the Oasis Temple, the Charlotte Convention Center and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Barnhardt Student Activity Center. ' Since 1964, more than 1300 Debutantes have participated in the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter’s Debutante Cotillion. ' The largest number of debutantes during a Cotillion season has been 58. ' Some of the Lead Choreographers during the last 50 years for the elaborate Debutante dances include: Elaine T. Brown, Jennie Green, Wanda Nelson, Ethie Waterman, Karen Eady-Williams, Joye Henderson, Katrina Johnson, and Briana Gibson. ' Berlinda Tolbert, the 1968 Cotillion Queen, played Jenny on the television show “The Jeffersons.”

To, Justice Johnson and Chasity Johnson-Anthony Thanks for being my true friend, I love you Chazz, I love you too, Justice

Class of 2014 132


Debutantes Justice Johnson and Chasity Johnson-Anthony Don't Quit By: Unkown Author When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit. Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns As every one of us sometimes learns. And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out: Don't give up though the pace seems slowYou may succeed with another blow. Success is failure turned inside outThe silver tint of the clouds of doubt. And you never can tell how close you are. It may be near when it seems so far: So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

From Ms. Beth Frierson

To Chazzie Bae and Jus-Jus From a tiny bundle till today We have watched you grow each day.... From endless cries to endless laughs We have watched you glow each day.... From innocent questions to the incredible mischievous We have watched you learn each day.... From the little walks we have to the small talks we do.... From the kisses you plant to the crushing hugs you give.... I save the memories each day.... For one day I will have to be happy with only those memories near me And you away from me.... For life will sure play the same game as it does every other day.... But remember my dear, we will be there forever for you as like today....

Love, Uncle Omar and Uncle Cedric

God’s purpose is that you should praise Him and give Him Glory. You are marked as belonging to Christ by the Holy Spirit. His presence in you is God’s guarantee that He really will give you all that He has promised; and the Spirit’s seal upon you means God has already purchased you and that he guarantees to bring you to Him. We have never stopped thanking God for you. We pray for you constantly. asking God to give you wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is as you continue to grow. We pray that your heart and eyes will be filled with light so that you can see something of the future He has called you to share. We pray that you will begin to see how incredibly great His power is. God is the author and finisher of everything.

This is our prayer for you.

Chasity Johnson-Anthony Do you know how much you mean to me? As you grow into what you will be. You came from within; from just beneath my heart it's there you'll always be though your own life will now start. You're growing so fast it makes my head spin, with misty eyes I ask, where's my little girl? I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, but one day you will see, I taught you well because I care. The next few years will so quickly fly, with laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry. As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, you'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go. You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear, for all your dreams and goals, sit before you very near. With Gods love in your heart and the world by its tail, you'll always be my winner, and victory will prevail. For you this poem was written, with help from above, to tell you in a rhythm of your Mothers heartfelt Love! Love, Mommy 283


Chasity Johnson-Anthony You are a princess in my heart, and I care for you so much. I love the fondness in your eyes and your tender little touch. I looked at you when you were born, and knew then straight away, that I would be forever here to watch you grow and play. You bring to me a heart of joy, and memories so great, and a powerful sense of fatherhood that no one can debate. I watch you sleep and dream of things that I can only wonder. at innocent look upon your face just makes my heart grow fonder. I see you run and jump and shout and calling out my name. No love that I have ever known could ever feel the same. No suering or tragedy nor deeply seated pain could ever over shadow the bond we retain. And so my little princess before you go to sleep, Remember I am your daddy and I am yours to keep. Love, Daddy 284


Chasity Johnson-Anthony

I am proud of you and your accomplishments. DETERMINATION has a strong hold on you which will help you reach your goals. Keep striving for the best and always keep GOD in front, through all of your journeys in life. Love always, Grandma Gina 285


CHASITY JOHNSON-ANTHONY

With every passing year you continue to grow and mature into a young lady that

continues to make me very proud of you. With all my love, Granddaddy George 286


Chasity Johnson-Anthony

A sister is someone who loves you from the heart, no matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart. You are my joy and cannot be taken away.

When I entered your life I was there to stay. A friend who helps you through diďŹƒcult times, your comforting words are worth much more than dimes. A partner who ďŹ lls my life with laughs and smiles, our memories will last miles and miles. Love, CJ your charming and adorable little brother. 287


Kamron,

I love you so much and I am proud to be your grandfather. You have been such a blessing to my life. You bring me great joy and I thank God for you. Congratulations on all your accomplishments!

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition. With thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understandings, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.� Philippians 4:6-8 288


Our wish for Kamron Tayler Kenan “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.� - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We love you Karli and The Tanner Family 289


Kamron, We have watched you grow into a marvelous young lady. We are so proud. We have tried to instill in you all of the things that were gifted to us by our parents and others who came before us. We know that you listened even when you pretended not to. It is our prayer that as you move forward you will continue to keep God first. You were wonderfully and perfectly made in His image. Remember, He does not call the equipped, He equips the called. You have been called to do great things. We love you and support you 100%! Mommy and Corey 290


Kamron Congratulations on all of your achievements. God has blessed you with all the gifts necessary for phenomenal success on your journey; intellect, discernment, beauty and compassion. You’re destined to accomplish the extraordinary! Go forth with confidence in God’s abundant blessings for you. You have all your family’s love and support. Mom Granny Armand 291

Debutante Renee Smith

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. – Steve Jobs

We wish you the very best, Hon. Karen Eady-Williams Mecklenburg County District Court Judge and Hon. Darrel J. Williams, FAIA Former Mecklenburg County Commissioner Neighboring Concepts, LLC, Principal/Owner 423
