ODU'S DELTA SIGMA LAMBDA SORORITY AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS, CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Old Dominion University's Delta Sigma Lambda sorority gathered recently to celebrate 50 years of service at the university. The organization, which is committed to the objectives of duty, service and loyalty to others, also announced the award of four scholarships for the 2006-07 school year at the May 20 reunion.

Glenny Burns Undergraduate Scholarship was awarded to Amanda Beacraft, a senior psychology major from Suffolk, and Dianne Aubin, a junior interdisciplinary studies major from Hampton.

Dr. Ruth Harrell Graduate Scholarship was awarded to Amy Puffinberger, an elementary education major from Stephens City, and Susan Oncu, a nursing major from Williamsburg.

The sorority was founded in 1956 by a group of women who returned to school after a delay in their formal education. In their years of service the group, which was originally labeled the 25 Plus Club, has provided encouragement, fellowship and support to countless women returning to campus.

Currently, the members of Delta Sigma Lambda volunteer at the H.E.R. Shelter for battered women.
