Greetings, It is our pleasure to welcome you, the families, marshals, guests, donors, and members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to “Diamonds of a Cultivated Treasure”, our 53rd Annual Cotillion. We have had the pleasure to work with 34 lovely young ladies and experience them blossoming into beautiful debutantes. Parents, we Thank You for allowing us, as well as the members of our chapter, the pleasure of meeting, working with, and providing a positive impact. The opportunity to watch them enjoy the wonderful experience of being a debutante through fellowship, activities, and community service was as rewarding for us as well as it was for the debutantes. Because of your hard work, dedication, patience, and financial support, the Cotillion has been a success. Today, we say, Debutantes, job well done! You have spent countless hours preparing for this day. Your dedication, commitment, perseverance, and intelligence have been important factors to get you to this moment, where you are presented as a young woman. Watching you as Santa’s helpers to allow young kids a chance to shop for loved ones, giving kids a chance to cast votes and have their voices heard, putting toys together and packing them for those less fortunate, and playing bingo with those at the Ronald McDonald House show you to be servant leaders in the community in which you live. Allow your talents and gifts to continue to shine as you move toward your goals of life. As you continue your walk in life to achieve every goal you have set for yourself, remember to cherish every moment and there is nothing you can’t achieve. “Nothing is impossible; the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” Audrey Hepburn Wishing you the best,

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.
