This is the Pyramid Line All Grown Up

I took a big break this weekend and returned to Michigan State University for homecoming. I graduated from college in 1989 and not been back since 1995. My trip was made extra special because it was also the celebration of my 20th year in Delta Sigma Theta.

"This is the pyramid line. You know we're looking so fine. If you wanna know which way to go, which way to go. The way is not AKA, they think they're fine, so fine but check this line it's DST."

I pledged DST in 1988 with seventeen other women and we became known as E.L.I.T.E. 18. Eighteen Ladies Inclined To Excel today are wifes, mothers, doctors, teachers, principals, business owners, ministers, and accountants. Fourteen of the eighteen were there and it was a great time trying to remember all the songs we used to sing. Some even had the courage to step -- uh not me.

Everybody looks great and we took a 20-year anniversary picture to go next to our pledge picture from '88. I have to say that I am proud of their accomplishments but more proud of the women that we have become. Happy Anniversary to my E.L.I.T.E. Sands! Ooh-Oop!
