Greensboro, NC - U.S. Senator Kay Hagan today congratulated Delta Sigma Theta Sorority as it prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary Sunday. The Sorority of more than 300,000 members has 43 alumnae chapters and 25 collegiate chapters in North Carolina.

"I congratulate Delta Sigma Theta on 100 years of fulfilling its commitment to helping those in need here in North Carolina and around the world," Hagan said. "From its first act of fighting for women's suffrage through today, the members of Delta Sigma Theta have worked to create change and improve lives. I wish them 100 more years of excellence and success."

All year long, the Sorority will be celebrating with centennial activities that include a reenactment of its participation in the women's suffrage movement in March in Washington, DC. The Sorority will hold its 51st National Convention in July, also in Washington.
