Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.® celebrates 110 Years of Service
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. ®, celebrated 110 years of service to the community and mankind on January 15, 2018. The Alpha Tau Omega Chapter celebrated Founders’ Day in grand style on Sunday January 26, 2018 at the Omni Hotel with over 325 people in attendance. This San Antonio Tri-Centennial event highlighted the founding of the first Greek-letter sorority for African-American women on the campus of Howard University in 1908.
This year’s theme, “A Legacy of Pearls: In the Community, By the Community and For the Community” was eloquently explored by the renowned guest speaker, Dr. Jacqueline Walters, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. ® and star of the BravoTV show “Married to Medicine”. She challenged the audience to continue to make a difference by elevating the dreams and visions of the founding members and to continue to reflect the communal consciousness steeped in the sorority’s tradition and embodied in its creed: “To be supreme in service to all mankind.”
Alpha Tau Omega Chapter President, Ms. H. Donna Millhouse took great pride in
honoring Alpha Tau Omega’s 104 year old member, Mrs. Gertha Murphy. The chapter’s new Golden and Silver Star members were also honored for serving 50 and 25 years respectively in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. ® The honorees included Mrs. Gjaundell Brazile (Golden honoree), and 4 Silver Star honorees: Mrs. Precious Coleman, Mrs. Sheri Evans, Mrs. Linda King and Dr. Wanda Thompson . We appreciate the community at large for supporting and celebrating 110 years of Alpha Kappa Alpha excellence in collaboration with our SA 300 partnership with the City of San Antonio.
