Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Donated $50,000 to President Kimbrough’s SAFE FUND for student emergencies during his Inaugural concert as the seventh president of Dillard University.
This donation was presented to Dr. Kimbrough by Mrs. Cynthia M.A. Butler-McIntyre the 24th National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She was initiated into the Sorority through the Beta Gamma Chapter located at Dillard University. Mrs. Cynthia M.A. McIntyre announced the gift at the annual Fall meeting of the Dillard University National Alumni Association Meeting and did a formal presentation at the Inaugural concert on the same night. It is hoped that the gift will motivate the other Greek letter organization of the NPHC to do the same.
