ATLANTA — A group of sorority sisters marked a milestone anniversary by paying it forward to their school in a big way.
In celebration of their 25th anniversary, members of the the spring 1994 line of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. - Eta Kappa Chapter (DSTHK) donated $160,000 to Spelman College.
The sizable donation will go toward the Spelman Technology Innovation Fund, which is dedicated to increasing access to emerging technology and infrastructure among students, faculty and staff.
The goal of the donation was to get 100 percent participation from the line.
Fifty of the 60 sorority sisters returned to Spelman's campus over the weekend to present the check to the school's president Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell.
"To whom much is given – much is expected," said the group in a statement announcing the donation.
The group hopes their $160,000 gift will inspire other alumnae to continue to invest in the future of Spelman College.
"Spelman has given so much to her students since its founding in 1881, and this group of determined and visionary women wants to motivate others to take a leap of faith and make a 'choice to change the world'," the group concluded.
