|About||Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated Sigma Gamma Omega Chapter serves Harrisonburg, VA and surrounding communities.|
The small group of women who organized the Sorority was conscious of a privileged position as college-trained women of color, just one generation removed from slavery. They were resolute that their college experiences should be as meaningful and productive as possible. Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded to apply that determination; however, its influence extends beyond campus quads and student interest. It has a legacy of service that deepens, rather than ends, with college graduation.
The goals of its program activities center on significant issues in families, communities, government halls and world assembly chambers. Its efforts constitute a priceless part of the global experience in the 21st century.
Since its founding over a century ago, Alpha Kappa Alpha’s mission has been to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life, and to be of “Service to All Mankind.”
|Description||Sigma Gamma Omega was chartered on December 16, 1989 and serves Harrisonburg and surrounding communities. They also provide support for the Lambda Chi Chapter - the local undergraduate chapter at James Madison University.|
