Cole, Deborah B

​Deborah Cole helped launch a Delta Sigma Theta sorority chapter while a student at Bradley University from 1968-1972, and while in Springfield, Illinois she also encouraged former members of the sorority to consider forming an alumnae chapter. Therefore, she is one of the charter members of the Springfield-Decatur area Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Alumnae chapter. She was instrumental in gathering enough sorority members, eighteen to be exact, to form a chapter covering both Springfield and Decatur.
