The establishment of the Xi Alpha Sigma Chapter saw the distinguished presence of key figures within the organization, including International President Rasheeda S. Liberty, International First Vice-President Marica Harris, International Corporate Headquarters Executive Director Karen Williams, and various members of the International Board of Directors. Over 200 devoted members of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, traveled from the United States and other parts of the world to Tokyo to bear witness to the chartering of the chapter. Adding to the festivities, members from the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) in Tokyo graced a private reception with their presence.
