The Lexington Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority hosted its 2012 Debutante Scholarship Ball on April 6. The Debutante Scholarship Program is a five-month program focusing on "encouraging higher education and fostering finer womanhood through instruction in charm, etiquette and social awareness." In honor of the 50th anniversary of the ball, Gov. Steve Beshear proclaimed April 6 as Delta Sigma Theta Day in Kentucky.

More than $24,000 was awarded in scholarships to the 20 debutantes. Miss Delta Debutante was MarKedra Jackson, first runner-up was Danielle Dailey, and second runner-up was Shayana Fields.
