2022  brings another centennial celebration for one of the members of the historically Black Greek-Letter sororities and fraternities that make up the “Divine Nine.”

Serving the greater Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex is the lifelong mission for the women in the “Amazing” Alpha Omicron Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc, as the members of this public service organization celebrate 100 years of service.

In an effort to help seniors combat the impending heat, last week the chapter’s Fabulous 50s group donated 51 box fans to the Dallas Office of Community Care Senior Services

Fabulous 50s Sorors of the Alpha Omicron Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated.

“Many seniors go through the summer months without a comfort that we take for granted, cool air,” said Stevette Bauman, co-chair of Alpha Omicron Sigma’s Hospitality Committee. “It’s our job as an organization to make sure we care for those who need additional support. It’s what makes us ‘Greater’.”

Founded in 1922, Sigma Gamma Rho’s centennial year is focused on service to mankind. Sigma Gamma Rho’s commitment is expressed in the sorority’s slogan “Greater Service, Greater Progress,” which promotes the intrinsic values of sisterhood, leadership development, and community service.
