Welcome!

As you view our website, please join us in congratulating a phenomenal woman, one of our greatest leaders in the sorority, Vice President Kamala Harris, for being elected as the first Black female to serve as Vice President of the United States of America.  The members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® Beta Pi Omega chapter are proud that she chose our sisterhood as a stepping-stone for her success. As we celebrate Vice President-Elect Harris as a phenomenal woman, we as members of Beta Pi Omega are reminded that we, too, are phenomenal women because of our sisterly and sincere service in the community since 1937.

 

Our leadership is demonstrated through our success in serving our communities. In 2020, we had many successes, some of which included:

 

  1. Awarding $25,000 in scholarships to students attending college, including $7,250 to HBCU’s.

  2. Preparing 128 students for college with 32 students admitted.

  3. Providing 11,000 volunteer hours educating women regarding mental awareness, breast cancer awareness, healthy eating, healthcare, and wellness in general.

  4. Providing 1000 volunteer hours educating the community regarding their financial legacy, including monitoring credit reports, savings clubs, to name a few.

  5. Purchasing over $38,000 in goods and services with 99 Black-owned businesses.

  6. Exposing more than 10,000 students and 19,000 members of the community to the benefits of reading African American authors, the Arts, Black Art and the Harlem Renaissance; and

  7. Providing assistance locally and globally to over 850 persons who received 632 pairs of eyeglasses: 579 pairs of shoes and 275 little dresses.

Beta Pi Omega Chapter members spent 25,803 volunteer hours in service!  If that is not LEADERSHIP, we do not know what LEADERSHIP is!
