“The Eddie & Jacquie Stephens South Atlantic Travel Fund expansion opens the doors to so many more chapters, allowing even more students to attend the Delta Sigma Pi Leadership and Excellence Academies for Deltasigs (LEAD). These programs not only assist both collegiate and alumni members by providing valuable networking, but help build a cornerstone from which students can launch their professional, civic and Fraternal leadership.”
