By: Chanetelle Akins

Eta Omega chapter celebrated 100 years of Alpha Kappa Alpha by hosting a week of activities the week of January 15th. The week was titled “A Legacy of Sisterhood and Service: 100 Years of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.” To kickoff the week Sorors gathered for a Centennial dinner held at the Fifth Quarter Restaurant. During the dinner there was a centennial presentation on the founders as well as testimonials on “What AKA Means to ME” by a Golden, Silver, and new Soror. Other activities held during the week were a sisterly workout session, volunteering at the Presbyterian Community Center, an AKArd Networking mixer for entrepreneurs and professionals, a social mixer with the Beta Epsilon undergraduate chapter, and toiletry donations made to the House of Ruth from Sorors.
The week concluded with Sorors worshipping together at St. Stephens Baptist Church. The congregation welcomed the Sorors with acknowledgements from the pulpit as well as a PowerPoint recognizing our presence there during service. Following service Sorors fellowshipped by having brunch at the Bristol restaurant. Sorors and the Metro Louisville community thoroughly enjoyed the week as a kick off to celebrating for the entire year. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is celebrating 100 years of community service this year.
