Photo Courtesy of AKA ipkx tappa AUpkx The Ladies of AKA Celehrate 30 Years of Excellence at the University of Houston The name Alpha Kappa Alpha has been around since 1908 when it was founded at Howard University by 16 ladies. The women created Alpha Kappa Alpha with the hope that their organization would promote unity and friendship among college women, encourage high scholastic and ethical standards and to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve the social stature of the race. Today that purpose still holds true as AKA keeps tradition alive right here on the UH campus. On September 26, 1969 the Epsilon Lambda Chapter was created on the University of Houston campus, becoming the first black greek organization at UH, but it wasn't an easy task. The six women who founded the organization ran into such problems as racism and disapproval when trying to establish the chapter. These women prevailed and the Epsilon Lambda Chapter made its presence know becoming one of the most exceptional and distinguished organizations on the UH campus. The sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha have won regional awards such as President of the Year, Neophyte of the Year, Connection and Excellence in Education Award and many more. The Epsilon Lambda chapter strives to give back to the surrounding community and to accomplish their goal they take part in such community services as the March of Dimes, Eliza Johnson Home for the Aged, Camp Cougar Dance-a-thon for Muscular Dystrophy, Jasa House, Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation and the United Negro College Fund. The chapter also awards the Lynn Eusan Scholarship, named after Lynn Eusan who was UH's first black homecoming queen and an AKA sister, to outstanding high school seniors. The Epsilon Lambda chapter has truly lived up to the expectations that their founders envisioned. • by Linda Canales A STAR IS BORN LaTonya Anderson, Zenlthe Pierre, Dawn DuBose, Courtney St. Julian, Yomi Togunde & Elese Fisher on the Debar Duncan Show.
