Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Psi Theta Omega Chapter
It is my honor as the President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Psi Theta Omega Chapter and on behalf of our members, to humbly welcome you to our chapter website.
Since our inception, the Psi Theta Omega chapter has dedicated itself to the mission of our international organization by actively engaging and collaborating with the community to identify and direct programs to address social ills, while aligning with our International Program Initiatives. Our sisterhood encompasses a diverse group of gifted professionals eagerly seeking opportunities to carry out the vision of our founders. Supreme service to all mankind is what we strive to exemplify throughout the Central Florida community and abroad.
Established on January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is the oldest sorority established by African American women in our nation. Our mission is 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”.
Under the leadership of our International President, Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson we are excited to present the “Launching New Dimensions of Service” program initiative, which features five (5) specific community-based targets. They are 1) Educational Enrichment 2) Health Promotion 3) Family Strengthening 4) Environmental Ownership and 5) Global Impact.
The Launching New Dimensions of Service initiative highlights six (6) Community Impact Days to expand the opportunity for outreach to a larger venue and enhance working relationships with both corporate and community partners. The Community Impact Days are as follows: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service (January), Pink Goes Red for Heart Health Day (February), 1908 Playgrounds Mobilization Day (May), The Longest Day™ Alzheimer’s Support Activities (June), Mental Health Awareness Day ( July) and Childhood Hunger Awareness Day (October).
While we are committed to the implementation of our International Program initiatives, we are equally devoted to the annual signature programs that are unique to the Psi Theta Omega Chapter. Our Annual Pink Pearl Affair is our signature professional networking mixer, themed with a purpose. We also pride ourselves on our year-long Annual Blooming in June Coterie program and Debutante Ball geared towards young ladies preparing to enter into the 12th grade and the Little Miss Tea Rose Pageant geared towards little girls, ages 5-12. These signature programs support mentorship, character development, and scholarship.
We ask that you continue to support all of our service, social and charitable endeavors throughout the year. There is much to be done and we are ready for what is ahead; but we cannot succeed without the help from those who support our efforts. Our focus is intact, fresh perspective is upon us, and we are prepared to “Embrace the Big Picture!”
Again, welcome to our website. The members of Psi Theta Omega Chapter warmly welcome you to browse; locate details concerning upcoming events; purchase tickets; invest in our programs; secure scholarship or participant applications; or contact us regarding collaborative projects in the community.
We Strive and We Do,
Roberta F. Walton, Esq.
