Greetings From Our President!
THINGS THAT ARE WORTHWHILE AND WITH A SMILE.
It is my pleasure to bring greetings on behalf of the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.®, Zeta Theta Omega Chapter (ΖΘΩ)! Chartered on April 3, 1954, we have been a bedrock of support in the Akron area for 68 years.
We are proud members of the first Greek-letter organization for college educated African American Women. Our Founders had a perpetual vision of sisterhood and service. Their “vision fair” continues to impact the world globally and locally wherever Alpha Kappa Alpha women serve. In Akron, Ohio, ΖΘΩ continues to work tirelessly in our community to execute the mission and vision of our beloved sisterhood.
As we celebrate 68 years of service to the Akron community, we are intentionally ‘leveling up’ our service and sisterhood. Specifically, our International President, Dr. Glenda Glover, has tasked us with five targets and one signature program via the Exemplifying Excellence through Sustainable Service platform. Her initiatives allow us to impact the community in sustainable ways economically, educationally, and socially.
Our 2018-2022 International Program focuses on five target areas: HBCU for Life, A Call to Action, Women's Healthcare & Wellness, Building Your Economic Legacy, The Arts! and Global Impact.
As Chapter President, my vision for Zeta Theta Omega is to nurture the cohesiveness of our ivy and to embody one empowered sisterhood united in purpose, sisterliness, and service.
For Alpha Kappa Alpha women seeking a (new) home, we invite you to visit our chapter. You are Always Welcome in ΖΘΩ! And for the community at large, we invite your support of our chapter and our philanthropic arm, the P.E.A.R.L. Foundation.
Join us in our efforts as we provide Sisterly Service to build a better community for the Greater Akron area. We have accomplished much but we have even “greater tasks” ahead of us.
We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest news on our programming. Follow us on Eventbrite for ticket information to our upcoming events. We look forward to partnering with you soon!
