Today, Delta Sigma Theta's Montgomery alumae chapter hosted a reception for Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd at the Capital City Club.

Boyd is the university's 14th president and the first woman to hold the position and a member of Delta Sigma Theta.

Dozens of people came out for the reception. The group has more than 400 members in the Montgomery area.

Sorority alumane who work locally in professions like law, medicine, and state government say hiring a female president is a step forward for the university.
