In 1943 the Beta Omicron Sigma Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was chartered in Fort Valley, Georgia for post-graduate members. In 1959, this chapter became the Fort Valley Alumnae Chapter. Because Beta Omicron Sigma Chapter was in close proximity to Macon, members travelled to Fort Valley for meetings and to conduct sorority business. Even though members were appreciative of and worked collaboratively with Beta Omicron Sigma Chapter, in 1957, the twelve members living in Macon decided to pursue their dream of chartering a chapter in Macon, Georgia.
The following counties make up the chapter’s current service area: Bibb, Jones, Monroe, Twiggs and Wilkinson.
