LAMBDA CHI HISTORY
The Delta Sprites were formed in the fall of 1974 for all the ladies interested in pledging Delta Sigma Theta Sorority at The University of Texas at Arlington. Lillie Griffin was the first president of the Delta Sprites followed by Delores Connor. After the charter line was implemented, Annie Brown then took office as president of Delta Sigma Theta.
The Lambda Chi chapter has always been closely linked to Mt. Olive Baptist Church. From this relationship, a Delta choir was created which eventually became known as the Voices of Christ at UTA in the fall of 1978.
Throughout the past 42 years, Lambda Chi has been an integral part of the UTA campus and the community. Chapter members have continuously committed themselves to community service. Each year the Lambda Chi chapter sponsors numerous service projects and events that are educational and to help increase cultural awareness. Projects include: presenting poet Nikki Giovanni, a gospel festival, the annual African-American Faculty/Staff/Student Mixer, The Delta Ball, Mr. Crimson and Creme Scholarship Pageant, Soul Food Night, and the Women's Retreat. Other activities also include: participating in the African-American Extravaganza, volunteering for Mission Arlington, Adopt-A-Highway, Halloween Carnivals for underprivileged youth, mentoring programs and voter registration.
