About Vallejo Alumnae Chapter


Two members, Sylvia G. Harris and Deloris Parker Doster, discussed the need to bring Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to Vallejo with other women in the community who saw an overwhelming need in Solano County that could be met by the programs and services of this organization committed to public service. Thus, the Vallejo Alumnae Chapter was chartered in 1974. Homoiselle Davis, Regional Director, performed the chartering ceremony.
