Sorority information sessions Saturday
The Lambda Epsilon Sigma Salisbury Alumnae of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. will host their informational meeting for the sorority and their affiliate organization, The Philo club, on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. at The Wrenn House at 115 S Jackson St., Salisbury.
Potential graduate members of Sigma must hold a degree from a four-year accredited educational institution. Since its inception, Sigma Gamma Rho has promoted unity among women and for years many alumnae chapters worked with individuals who were not members of Greek-lettered organizations.
The Philos, for non-degreed women, were organized into auxiliaries that had various names until 1954 when the sorority officially approved the organized affiliate group and accepted the name of Philo (meaning friend) as their official name. The Philos have grown to represent hundreds of women organized on a regional and national level as well.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority’s aim is to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and education of youth are the hallmark of the organization’s programs and activities. Sigma Gamma Rho addresses concerns that impact society educationally, civically, and economically.
The organization service areas covers Rowan & surrounding counties.
