Rosia Blackwell Lawrence

Eastern Regional Director

Faith Wade

Eastern Regional Representative

Greetings and welcome to our newly-designed website of the Dynamic and Historic Eastern Region.

We encourage you to visit it regularly to learn more about what our chapters and members are doing to further our legacy of leadership in THE EAST and beyond. We are deeply honored to serve as your Regional Director and Regional Representative for the 2018-2020 biennium. It is with gratitude and humility that we say THANK YOU! 

As you know, the region is home to 143 collegiate and alumnae chapters hailing from the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Washington, DC, as well as the international chapters in Germany, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Croix and St. Thomas). Therefore, we understand the great privilege that has been granted to us. 

Together, hand in hand and side by side, we will continue to build upon the already great achievements of this dynamic and historic region. We will be a listening ear for each of you.  We look forward to working with every chapter and member within the region as we serve our communities and continue the work of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  

We invite you to visit the website for regular updates and information on regional and national initiatives. We remain, “THE FIRST TO SERVE, THE FIRST TO LEAD, THE FIRST TO EMPOWER.”
