Chapter History

 

 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the basic principle of providing service to all mankind. Since its chartering in 1934, members of Beta Gamma Omega Chapter have worked tirelessly in the Metro Lexington area and have never lost their commitment to service.  The chapter has sponsored dynamic programs, awarded numerous scholarships, and have consistently worked to improve the health, wealth, and well-being of this community and its citizens.

For over 80 years, thousands of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars have been donated to benefit many in this community. ¬†Benefactors have included the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Boys and Girls Club of America, Grace Coleman House, God’s Pantry, Hope Center, Jarrett’s Joy Cart, March of Dimes, MLK Memorial, Robert H. Williams Cultural Center, Salvation Army, United Negro College Fund, YMCA Black Achievers, and YWCA Spouse Abuse Center.

We are excited to implement our new administration’s program targets under the theme, “Launching New Dimensions of Service,” designed to help us fulfill our mission and live up to our purpose by promoting service in the spirit of our founders.
