Thumbs up Soror Shirley Ann Jackson will receive an honorary Doctor of Science

Soror Shirley Ann Jackson, president, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and renowned theoretical physicist, will receive an honorary Doctor of Science from the University of Pennsylvania at Almanac on May 15, 2006.

Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, the 18th president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, and Hartford, CT, the oldest technological research university in the U.S., has held senior leadership positions in government, industry, research, and academe.

Dr. Jackson is immediate past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and currently chairman of the AAAS Board of Directors, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Physical Society, and has advisory roles and involvement in other prestigious national organizations.

She was appointed chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), 1995-1999, by U.S. President William J. Clinton. At the NRC, Dr. Jackson reorganized the agency, and completely revamped its regulatory approach, by articulating, and moving strongly to, risk-informed, performance-based regulation. Prior to that, she was a theoretical physicist at the former AT&T Bell Laboratories and a professor of theoretical physics at Rutgers University.

Dr. Jackson holds an S.B. in physics and a Ph.D. in theoretical elementary particle physics from M.I.T., and 32 honorary doctoral degrees.

That's what I'm talking about! That's my soror and fellow alum (MIT)! I was so impressed when I first heard about Soror Jackson and her successes at MIT. She went through a lot to get that Ph.D. It gave me hope and inspiration to get my B.S. I'm so proud!

Soror Ralph receives grant from MAC AIDS Fund (BV)

Sheryl Lee Ralph's one woman show, 'Sometimes I Cry' was recently awarded a $40,000 Education/Awareness grant for Creative Theater Program from M.A.C. AIDS Fund. The play -- written and conceived by the actress-- depicts the raw and real life stories of women infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Ralph, who has been active in the fight for AIDS awareness for the past two decades, was motivated to do the show when she realized just how much the face of HIV/AIDS had really changed and how little was being said. "These women’s voices have been silent for too long in the struggle against HIV/AIDS and they must be heard," said the 'Dreamgirls' star, who is currently touring the country with the show. "Their health and well-being matters also." The play will be performed June 9, at Newark, New Jersey's Essex Community College, and June 25, at New York City's Aaron Davis Hall.

"[We are] proud to be able to support DIVA Foundation founder, Sheryl Lee Ralph, through her one-woman show," Bruce Hunter, Interim Executive Director/Executive Program Director for the M.A.C. AIDS Fund, told Black Voices. "An award winning actress and AIDS activist, who has generously donated her time to various M.A.C. (Make-up Arts Cosmetics) AIDS Fund events, Ms. Ralph brings very clear goals and expectations to this project." Since 1994, The M.A.C. AIDS Fund had provided funding to non-profit HIV/AIDS organizations and programs for basic needs, health-related recreational activities, and programs that bring HIV/AIDS education, awareness and prevention to public attention.

Plans are currently being firmed up for the show to tour campuses of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, this fall.

Congrats to Soror Staci!!! However, there needs to be a correction made. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is not a Christian based service sorority. We are a Public Service Sorority founded on christian principals. There's a big difference, IMO.

Soror Aretha to be honored by UNCF (BV)

Hail To The Queen

The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) will honor Aretha Franklin with its prestigious Award of Excellence on its annual television special, An Evening of Stars, which will air nationwide in January.

Previous honorees include Lou Rawls, (2004), Quincy Jones (2005) and Stevie Wonder (2006) The Queen of Soul will be the first female artist to receive the award, which recognizes her "longstanding and generous support of the UNCF's mission to provide deserving students with access to higher education, as well as for her well-known activism and philanthropy on behalf of numerous other causes."

In a statement, Michael L. Lomax, who is the president and CEO of UNCF, said: "UNCF is delighted to show Aretha Franklin some of the R-E-S-P-E-C-T that she has shown us for so many years…Now it is our turn to honor her by giving her our Award of Excellence. As an artist, an entertainer, and a citizen, her career has established a standard of excellence that exemplifies the educational distinction to which our member colleges are dedicated and to which they hold their students."

'An Evening of Stars,' formerly the Lou Rawls Parade of Stars, first aired in 1979, and since that time has become one of the longest running and most successful televised events in U.S. history.

Rawls, who passed away this past January, helped raise more than $200 million for the UNCF to supplement the cost of higher education for scholarship recipients and member institutions.

The three-hour concert tribute will be taped at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on Sept. 8 and 9.

Soror Staci Shands Crowned...TO DELTAVERO

Hi Soror,

The correction is noted. Thanks. That is what I get for doubting myself. I thought it didn't read right. I picked up the information from someplace else. I've been out of the loop for a while and wanted everything to be right. I sent this piece to a lot of Sorors but no one corrected me. Thanks again!

You know, I don't know how the announcement got on this site. I googled myself today and saw the link. I am very happy the release made it here.

I have been looking for a site like this and now I found one!
