Preceding the Fashionetta Pageant, the members of the chapter and professionals in various fields had the opportunity to work with each of these outstanding and upcoming young ladies to garnish excellent citizenship and etiquette skills; build new peer relationships; prepare their talent for presentation; participate in a corporate dance routine and the waltz while learning the meaning of team work.
The Fashionetta Pageant is the major fundraiser for the chapter. Annually, funds raised from the pageant are invested back into the community to support the Educational Grant Program, awarding scholarships to high school seniors in the Rowan-Salisbury and Davie County area.
These funds also support community service projects, agencies and organizations including Rowan Helping Ministries, Rowan County Department of Social Services, Christmas Happiness, Habitat for Humanity, Livingstone College UNCF and the Livingstone College Book Fair. These entities promote the international sorority’s theme of “Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service”.
Amelia Hasty-Rhodes is the chapter’s Fashionetta chairman, Sh’Myra Moore is program chairman and Lillian Morgan is president.
