Beta Omega Chapter

"A legacy of Sisterhood & Service"


Oral Histories (Golden & Diamond) 

Golden refers to sorority members that have been in the sorority 50 or more years.

Diamond refers to sorority members that have been in the sorority 75 or more years.

Oral histories are stories that living individuals tell about their past, or about the past of others. Beta Omega chapter has begun the process of preserving the oral histories of its most distinguished members, those that have remained faithful in their commitment of "service to all mankind" beyond 50 years. Below you will find wonderful stories, in their own words, by women committed to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
