During Women’s History Month each year, the Palm Coast/Flagler County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s Delta GEMS/Delta Academy Programs embark on a career tour.
The March tour is to the job sites of successful professional African-American women.
This year, the tour included the Flagler County School’s African American Mentoring Program for girls, Imagine School Young Girls of Color program, Chi Delta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s Ascend Network Youth Leadership Program, as well as the Ebony Society & Emerald Legacy of Flagler Palm Coast High School.
The tour included a stop to see Sgt. Karen Pierce, the first Black woman sergeant with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, the office of real estate broker Lucy Stewart Desmore, along with the classroom of Dr. Latreace Flynt, a professor at Bethune-Cookman University.
