Mildred Louise Bond - Delta Sigma Theta
Mildred Bond was born and raised in Brownsville, Tennessee, and attended Lane College in Jackson, Tennessee, where she pledged with the Delta Sigma Theta sorority. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1955, Ms. Bond began a long and successful teaching career in the Decatur, Illinois school district, garnering a reputation as an outstanding teacher. In 1976 she felt the time was right for a chapter of Delta Sigma Theta alums to be formed when another sorority sister/educator in Decatur presented the chartering idea to Mildred.
