The Eastern Panhandle Alumnae Chapter, or EPAC, began with the vision of 12 service-oriented women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, and made history by becoming the first Black Greek-letter sorority to organize a chapter in the Eastern Panhandle. EPAC received its charter in 2007.
Now with a membership that has more than doubled since its chartering, EPAC strives to promote academic excellence, provide support to the underserved, and advance public service initiatives within its service area of Berkeley and Jefferson Counties. As a collective body of college-educated women, EPAC works diligently to offer the Eastern Panhandle area a full scope of high-impact programs, services, and partnerships aligned with the Sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust. EPAC welcomes the opportunity to partner with other organizations and community leaders that share the same goals and ideals.
With professionals in education, law, various medical fields, engineering & technology, science, communications, and business, EPAC is a diverse group of women with many talents and expertise that has earned a reputation for getting the job done. In past years, EPAC has received chapter and individual recognitions, including Delta's Midwest Region's prestigious "Small Chapter of the Year" and "Soror of the Year" awards.
EPAC is one of many chapters organized in Delta's Midwest Region, which includes West Virginia as well as Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and the Province of Ontario. More information about Delta's Midwest Region can be found at www.dstmidwestregion.com.
