The women of Sigma Gamma Rho are doing some major work in the community and slaying at the same time!
The Gamma Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. is the oldest chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho in the city of Houston. It was chartered April 28, 1928 by six educators who were interested in furthering scholarship, community service, and leadership in the city and that is exactly what the chapter has done for the last 90 years.
The chapter recently celebrated 90 years of sisterhood and service to the Houston Area in April at a banquet attended by over 300 people.
The chapter is also known for its Annual Status of Women Luncheon which celebrates great women in a specific field and awards scholarships to deserving students.
When it comes to community service, these sorors go above and beyond to make the world a better place.
Events which the chapter participates in include but are not limited to Project EyeSaver, Breast Cancer Awareness, Operation BigBookBag, Youth Symposium and a Partnership with the Star of Hope.
But that is not all, the chapter has three undergraduate chapters: Epsilon Pi (University of Houston), Kappa Mu (Sam Houston State University), and Lambda Lambda (Texas A&M University) and two affiliate groups: Gamma Sigma Philos and the Gamma Sigma Rhoers.
The women of the chapter recently took a break from their busy careers and community involvement work to take a sisterhood photoshoot and document their chapters current membership for generations to come. Not only did these women take great photos, these women SLAYED in a way that only the women of Sigma Gamma Rho can.
“In regards to sisterhood, the chapter acknowledges that life is a journey that can have its highs and lows but as long as we have our sisters holding us up and ready to catch us if we fall, we will always succeed,” one of the members told Watch The Yard.
