WFAC Chapter History
In 1995, Sarah Williams organized a meeting in the home of Marva Walker with several local members of Delta Sigma Theta, Incorporated. They realized a need to establish a chapter in the extreme northern part of Texas due to the growing number of Deltas in the area. Through their untiring efforts, fifteen extraordinary women helped to create the Wichita Falls Alumnae Chapter which received its Charter on December 15, 1995 by Past Southwest Regional Director Shirley Friday, and Barbara Fluker, Past President of Metropolitan Dallas Alumnae Chapter.
Wichita Falls Alumnae Chapter became the 889th chapter to receive full privileges and responsibilities to operate as an official chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
