Knightdale-Wake Forest Alumnae Chapter History

The chartering of the Knightdale – Wake Forest Alumnae Chapter was the vision of Karla Solomon. Having established herself in rural Wake County, she saw firsthand the need of an alumnae chapter to service the more rural areas of Wake County.  In addition, it was her desire to see a smaller chapter in the Wake County area that would afford younger members the opportunity to work and hold leadership positions within the chapter. In the fall of 1995, twelve members of Delta Sigma Theta came together and commenced a series of meetings that would later lead to the chartering of the Knightdale – Wake Forest Alumnae Chapter.

On May 11, 1996, Knightdale – Wake Forest Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. received its charter from the Grand Chapter.  Knightdale – Wake Forest Alumnae has grown considerably since its chartering date.  The chapter has remained focused on rendering services to those that reside in our service area of North East Raleigh, Wendell, Knightdale, Wake Forest, Zebulon, Youngsville, Jonesville, and Rolesville.
