More than 500 guests attended the 18th annual awards ceremony held by the Bronx alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. This year’s theme was “Standing On Their Shoulders: A Celebration of the Wisdom of Women.” The event was held at Eastwood Manor, Bronx, N.Y.

The chairperson of the event, Hyacinth Hill, said, “Our goal is to acknowledge the public service accomplishments and achievements of women who have gone beyond the call of duty for the betterment of others. We thank them for their grace, gifts and the manner in which they make our communities better and for helping in moving society forward.”

The honorees were escorted to the podium by young ladies who participate in the Delta Gem program of the chapter. Musical selections were performed by vocalist Rick Anthony Jr., keyboardist Melody Moore and tenor saxophonist Warren Daniel.
