Sorority holds annual presentation

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. Epsilon Theta Zeta Chapter held its annual Debutante-Beautillion Presentation on Friday, April 27, at the Planters Club. This year’s theme was “Putting No Limits on Success.”

The program focused on assisting potential scholars with the preparation of their postsecondary education. Participating students hailed from King’s Fork, Lakeland and Windsor high schools.

The students, along with their mentors and parents, worked for more than six months raising money for their scholarships. More than $21,000 was raised collectively in scholarship funds.

Over the last 47 years, the Suffolk chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority has continually aided high school seniors with fundraising and professional development. The sorority consistently pushes the participants to maintain good merit, grades and behavior while pursuing their studies and professional careers.

The purpose of the presentation was to introduce the students to society at the proper time and in the proper manner as eligible young ladies and young men of our area. The presentation is one of the many activities sponsored by the sorority to raise funds for the annual scholarship fund, which is used to help worthy young people meet their financial obligations while enrolled in institutions of higher education.

Mia Williams and Diamante Moore, seniors from Lakeland High School, were named queen and king of the event. The sorority thanked the mentors and parents who assisted the contestants with the preparation for this event and their life after high school.
