Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. — Epsilon Theta Zeta Chapter put a different spin on its annual Debutante-Beautillion Scholarship Program this year. Students participated virtually in workshops to assist with the preparation of their postsecondary education and life. Participating students hailed from Lakeland High School. The students, along with their mentors and parents, worked for four months raising money for their scholarships. More than $4,000 was raised in scholarship funds.

Over the last 50 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 program 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.

Alayshia Myrick was crowned queen of the event. Kaila Barnes and Garrett Williams, the 2020 queen and king, were also honored. The Epsilon Theta Zeta Chapter thanks the mentors, parents, and donors who assisted the program participants.
