The women of Sigma Gamma Rho at Howard University are all about SERVICE!
The Alpha Phi Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., was chartered on April 28, 1939 in Miner Hall at Howard University. Nine young women, under the direction of Soror Ruby G. Peake, accepted their calling, and created a legacy that has stood the test of time.
“The Oh So Fly, Alpha Phi Chapter encourages and promotes high scholastic attainment, develops leadership and individual talents, emphasizes the value of poise and dignity, and provides an atmosphere in which friendships and social contacts may be developed,” the chapter’s website states
Over the last year, the chapter has dedicated itself to focusing on concerns that impact society, educationally, civically, and economically.
They have raised funds for Lymphoma and Leukemia, fed people on thanksgiving, adopted a block in their community to keep clean, held sex and health education events, served veterans at the Fisher House, and pushed voter registration.
These women are following the dream of their beloved founders. It is all about “Greater Service, Greater Progress”!
