The Roxboro Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the evening of Jan. 18. Each year the Deltas hold a banquet in an effort to keep the community focused on the things that King did for us.
During the evening, Dr. Pamela Senegal was presented the Deltas Choice Award, which is presented annually to a deserving individual. The Roxboro Alumnae Chapter chose one of their own as she embodies leadership and community service in Person County. Senegal is the epitome of what it means to be a trailblazer. She is a passionate, innovative educator who is a visible leader building relationships and partnerships designed to last.
The chapter is proud to have her as a member as she possesses such a humble spirit serving with a gracious smile. Senegal holds many titles, one which is being the first female President of Piedmont Community College as well as being a mom of three sons. She is active in her church and enjoys reading and traveling.
The current president of the Roxboro chapter is Anita Tapp and the chairperson of the event was Linda King.
The chapter has had an organized presence in Roxboro since March 28, 1981 and its purpose is to provide assistance and support established programs in the local communities throughout the world.
