Alpha Kappa Alpha chapter helps middle schoolers with pageant

The Delta Xi Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has been meeting with a group of sixth- seventh- and eighth-grade girls since January who are participants in the ěMiss Fashionettaî pageant. These young ladies are being provided with activities that help to cultivate and encourage leadership skills, social graces and character building.
In January, Saundra Stinson, a local cosmetologist, did a personal grooming workshop. Chapter members Renese Bates and Sarah Lightner also did presentations on leadership development.
February, ěBlack History Month,î was celebrated with sessions on ěSheroes.î The presenters discussed their favorite African-American heroines. Chapter presenters were a mother-and-daughters team, Lovetta Moore, ShíMyra Moore and ShíRae Moore. Anthony johnson of the Rowan-Salisbury School System did an Internet safety workshop.
March workshops focused on health and wellness. On March 12, Toshiba Bowers provided the young ladies with ways to exercise through aerobics. Chapter member Marsha Pruitt, a health and physical education teacher, talked about healthy eating and nutrition. On March 26 there was a workshop held on diabetes and further discussion on ěSheroesî.
The girls meet twice a month on scheduled Saturdays at Jerusalem Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. Workshops for April will address social graces and in May, cultural development. The young ladies who are participating in the workshops will be presented at the Miss Fashionetta Pageant on June 25 at 4 pm in the Livingstone College Auditorium.
President of the Delta Xi Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Sorority is Fonda Kirk and the chairwoman of the Miss Fashionetta Pageant is Carolyn Holt.
