ABOUT US

President's Message

I am humbled and honored to serve as the 6th President for the exceptional Frederick County (MD) Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. My commitment to our organization spans over years of service and support to local, regional, and national initiatives. I am pleased to build upon the foundation that was laid in 2004, when 16 members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. recognized their common bond and commitment to charter an alumnae chapter in Frederick, MD. Since its chartering, FCAC has been a change agent throughout Frederick County because of the quality programs and services offered to local citizens.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not able to host traditional events or interact with others face-to-face, however, we will continue to promote our programs and services to the community in a virtual environment.

 

Thank you for supporting our activities and viewing this website. Here are just a few highlights of our various service endeavors...

 

Established Programs and Activities:

  • Award annual scholarships in the spring of each year; over $160,000 awarded since 2007

  • Conduct Delta Academy, Delta GEMS, and EMBODI youth mentoring programs for young girls and boys in middle and high school focusing on self-esteem, goal setting, and academic excellence;

  • Establish a partnership with the housing authority to implement a tutoring program for pre-school youth-led by our Delta Dears;

  • Support St. Judes  walk/run through our annual FCAC DST team;

  • Organize voter registration training and monthly voter registration drives and various other events geared at advocating for social change and political awareness;

  • Lead physical and mental health-related activities with other local community service and long-term care facilities to promote healthy lifestyles; and

  • Offer volunteer services through our adopt-a-school program by providing food and clothing donations, PTA and classroom support

 

​Awards and Recognition:

As a testament to our hard work and dedication to public service, FCAC was recognized as the winner of the Eastern Region’s Small Chapter of the Year for two consecutive years (2013 and 2014) as well as the Exemplary Social Action Program (2014), an award given for excellence in programming in the areas of Political Awareness and Advocacy. In 2019, FCAC was recognized by the Frederick County Commission for Women as the Organization of the Year!!

 

We thank you for supporting our programs, and most importantly, patronizing our fundraising events to support our scholarship and public service programs.  FCAC continually looks for opportunities to develop partnerships with community leaders, thereby broadening the service impact upon the county, state, and nation. Again, we greatly appreciate the generous support we have been so blessed to receive, and it is our hope that you will use this page as a source of information about our sorority. 

 

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Marva Love Younger, President
