Charter Members

The organizing force behind the March 31, 1974 chartering of the Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter (PGCAC) understood the words of Shirley Chisholm who declared that “you don’t make progress, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.” As such, Ethel Mae Rogers Grundy, a local activist, business executive, and educator, realized that a chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was essential to strengthening Black families in her beloved Prince George’s County, Maryland. Over a period of several months, she galvanized 22 other professional women to chart the course for the first Delta chapter in the County. These women of extraordinary vision and faith dedicated themselves to enhancing the quality of life for all Prince Georgians by providing assistance to those in most need and promoting academic excellence and cultural enrichment. Several of the programs initiated by this amazing group of public school administrators, educators, Federal government managers, and corporate executives remain in place today, although with a reimagined perspective.

 

These amazing she-roes honored the evolution and incomparable legacy of Delta through their service as the first chairperson of the Delta Foundation, nine years as chapter presidents, and four years as the Pennsylvania State Coordinator. “May the work they’ve done speak for them.”
