Pan-Hellenic Council BBQ Cookoff in Delaware


We had a great conversation, not only discussing these events and activities but also the importance of giving back within the state of Delaware.  Emphasis on how many members of the Divine Nine have always been very active in the political arena and how we love seeing Vice President Kamala Harris, staying very active as a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.


As members of three different sororities, we all agreed that together we are stronger and there is collective power with all of the members of the Divine Nine.  Our bond is strong and the members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council of Central Delaware are working together to provide resources to the communities throughout the entire state of Delaware.

As a side note, Sheila, Nyesha and I all have a bond which is the friendship with Dr. Reba Hollingsworth, who is currently the Parliamentarian of the National Delaware State University Alumni Association.
