Transcript Progress Through Service Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority was organized on November 12, 1922, on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Ind. by seven young school teachers. These founders created a legacy in order to enrich the lives of young men and women. In order to accomplish this goal, they felt that receiving a higher education, living by the ethical standards, and rendering unselfish service to the community would make for a more prosperous society. Sigma Gamma Rho is a nonprofit organization which prides itself on the encouragement of high scholastic achievement, the promotion of community service, and the establishment of lifelong friendships. They hope to foster better relationships among all organizations within the Greek system. In order to make this life-long goal a reality, they participated in several Greek and campus events. The events ranged from the Cougar Rendezvous to Alpha Kappa Alpha's "Tribute to Lynn Eusan." Sigma Kappa Rho also participated in such projects as the Vocational Guidance and Workshop Center in New York City and Project Reassurance, which stressed high ethical and academic standards. Locally, Sigma Gamma Rho was involved in the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation's Walk- a-Thon and the March of Dimes Teamwalk. In addition to this, they provided a supportive atmosphere for its members in terms of academic growth. Their motto is "Greater Service, Greater Progress." Other activities included the Fall Activity Marts, Founder's Day, and the Alpha Phi Alpha "Tribute to Black Greek Americans." The number of activities sponsored by and participated in by the sorority is all the more impressive when one considers that they have only four members live on campus. Vice President and Dean of Pledges, Joanne Oten, is looking forward to an increase in membership. She hopes that increased visibility will lead to more participation and membership. "It is becoming increasingly challenging," she says, "to fulfill our service goals, but the greatest challenge has been to develop a membership able to step forward when the time comes and overcome any unforeseeable obstacles in the future." — J.C. fl'INfr ♦ J^ SIGMA GAMMA RHO — Aurora Sharon Wilkins, Daisy Hall (Chapter Advisor), Hazel Webster (Alumni Chapter President), Karlene Williams (Chapter Treasurer), Joanne Oten (Chapter Vice- President). 316 University of Houston
