Dr. Deborah Cannon P. Wolfe Scholarship

Chi Eta Zeta established this scholarship in honor of Dr. Deborah Cannon P. Wolfe, the 14th International President of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Born on December 22, 1916 in Cranford, New Jersey, Dr. Wolfe earned her Bachelor’s degree in Social Studies and went on to earn a Master’s degree and a doctorate in Education. Dr. Wolfe devoted her life to teaching at the primary, secondary and post-secondary levels. Having been awarded over 65 honorary degrees, she was one of the most influential educators in the United States during the twentieth century.  As the sorority’s longest serving President to date, she devoted life to education and our sorority. Dr. Wolfe was influential in many of the organization’s accomplishments, including the development of the organization’s international headquarters. Her life is a true inspiration and her legacy will be felt for generations. In her name and legacy, we award a scholarship to deserving young women.

Adopt-A-School

The Adopt-A- School initiative allows members of Zeta Phi Beta to identify low performing schools and provide assistance in a number of ways to enhance the educational experience, increase test scores and grades. Chapter Members purchase supplies and/or equipment, provide volunteer hours, assist with parent engagement programs and work with administrators to identify needs that may be specific to that particular school.
