Staff report


Youngstown Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., will sponsor a prayer breakfast April 5 at The Georgetown, 5945 South Ave.

The doors will open at 8:30 a.m., and the event will commence at 9. Tickets cost $25 per person, and the breakfast is open to the public. The event is a fundraiser that helps to finance the sorority’s scholarship gifting fund.

Music will be part of the festivities, and Cynthia M.A. Butler-McIntyre, the immediate past national president of Delta Sigma Theta, will be the guest speaker.

The theme for the breakfast is Called to Serve: Using Our gifts to be in Service to Others.

Butler-McIntyre, who was president for five years, made a global impact for women’s and children’s issues, nutrition, education, political awareness, physical and mental health and international issues.

Founded 101 years ago, Delta is based on Christian values. Butler-McIntyre exemplifies those values, because her life is a testimony of sacrifice and commitment while she served under extreme pressure.

She is affectionately referred to as “a leader with a heart.” President Obama has appointed her to serve on several national boards of directors.

Butler-McIntyre is a lifelong resident of New Orleans.
