Flint Alumnae Chapter History

Organizational Phase

Marie Hackley Wright served as Acting President during the organizational phase of the Flint chapter’s development, with Dolores Watkins Ennis serving as the first official president from 1954-1955. The immediate focus of the chapter was encouragement of academic, cultural, social and financial development of young people.


Flint Alumnae has been very visible at Delta’s National and Regional levels. Charter member Hortense Golden Canady became our 18th National President serving from 1983-1988. Bobbie J. Ewing (a two-time past chapter president 1982-1986 and 1992-1994), served as Midwest Regional Director from 1995 to 1999. Several other Flint Alumnae Chapter members have served on regional and national committees as well.
