HAWAII ALUMNAE CHAPTER And so the legacy continues. Hawaii Alumnae Chapter was chartered by 13 determined dynamic Sorors on April 12, 1983 on the island of Oahu Soror Mona Bailey was National President and Soror Floraline Ingram Stevens, Farwest Regional Director. Hawaii Alumnae services the island of Oahu, one on eight Hawaiian Islands. The first group of women of Hawaii Alumnae was initiated on June 2, 1983. Ayisha R. Jeffries was chapter president at the time. There were nine initiates to join Hawaii Alumane. Immediately after their initiation they began fund-raising hosting a dance at Tripler Officers Club. The chapter’s public service projects at the time included supporting the local military family abuse shelter. The monies were raised through yard and bake sales. CHARTER MEMBERS Della Watson Binion, Sylvia Black, Margaret Yvonne Colley, Angel Wright, DeGray Beatrice Robinson Gillespie Voncius, Sander Hicks, Orian Langley Hight, Ayisha R.

Hawaii Alumnae Chapter is one of unique temperament. As it stands today, many of the chapter members are affiliated with the military. As it was with the chartering members, many are active duty, military dependents and contract civilian government employees. The chapter is consistently challenged by the transit nature of its members. Because of the large military population in Hawaii, many members don’t stay longer than 3-4 years at time. In 2001, Hawaii Alumnae Chapter was proud to be the host of the 43rd Farwest Regional Conference June 1417, “It Takes a Village 2001.” This was a major honor for the chapter and their hosting was a major success. Those who attended participated in workshops, plenary, and enjoyed the many sites. Sorors left the island feeling the true meaning of the “Aloha Spirit.” Awards and Recognitions Since the inception of the chapter, Hawaii Alumnae has been recognized by the Council of the City of Honolulu on February 17, 1993 for their service to the community. At this time, some of the community service projects/ programs included: On January 21, 1995, Office of the Mayor City and County of Honolulu made a Proclamation, that this day would be "Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Day", in appreciation for the sisterhood’s substantial contributions to the well-being of our people.” Other Awards Include 2009 Farwest Regional Directors Chapter of the Year Award 2011 Farwest Region Excellence In Membership Program Award 2011 Proud Farwest Regional Scholarship Contributor 2012 NAACP Community Organization of the Year
