Regional Participation

The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Pasadena Alumnae Chapter has had the distinction of having two members elected to serve as Directors of the Farwest Region. Soror Mable Martin was the first to serve in that role from 1941 through 1943. Soror Gwendolyn Sherard-Bishop was the second to serve in this prestigious role from 1984 through 1989. Soror Sherard-Bishop's term was extended to accommodate the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated 75th anniversary. During this time the Farwest Region hosted that, "all important" National Convention, "The Golden Gate in 88", and also inaugurated Delta Days at the State Capitol which has become a National focus.

We are proud to acknowledge that during their tenure as Regional Director both sorors Gwendolyn Sherard-Bishop and Mable Martin served with exceptional integrity and extraordinary commitment that set the stage for others to follow in their footsteps.
