“It is the mission of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. to enhance the quality of life for women and their families in the U.S. and globally through community service, civil and social action,” said Vice President Ayauna Goodwin. “Our goal is to achieve greater progress in the areas of education, health awareness, and leadership development.”
On Nov. 19, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. (SGRHO) held a national intake process to initiate five new members:
- Jaimy Alejandro
- Tia Roberts
- Lonnia Berry
- Sydney Wyatt
- Senea Tisdale
SGRHO is part of the Divine 9, which are the nine African American Greek organizations under National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).
‘ I couldn’t have made a better decision by far this year’
For SGRHO, and other groups in NPHC, involvement is a lifetime commitment and the new members intake process ensures that new members understand the history of their sorority and the commitment that they are making.
“For our newer members, they are to complete our national intake process. Throughout this, they are enlightened with the history of our organization and the history of our specific chapter. Also, the ladies are introduced to our surrounding chapters to formulate that great bond that the former members already possess,” said Goodwin.
The intake process is a 45-minute presentation in which the new members recite the history of SGRHO and the Divine 9.
The surrounding chapters at Wright State are introduced and included in the presentation, demonstrating the bond that NPHC fraternities and sororities have.
“Words can’t express the way that I feel about SGRHO and the Mighty XiXi Chapter. It’s so rewarding to be a part of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. I couldn’t have made a better decision by far this year,” said Tisdale.
At the end of the presentation, new members had their masks removed by current members of SGRHO and announced their names and what their sisters and sorors would know them as.
How to get involved:
For those who wish to join SGRHO, research is crucial. Because it is a lifetime commitment, interests must become informed on the organization and the chapter at WSU.
