Ms. Hickmon was also a member of the DREF Board of Directors and her leadership and service to the Sorority was exceptional and exemplary.  She maintained continuous, active membership in Delta since her initiation at South Carolina State University’s Alpha Xi Chapter in 1982 through her current membership in Hartford (CT) Alumnae Chapter.
