A MESSAGE FROM OUR BASILEUS
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Eta Sigma Atlanta Alumnae chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
Since 1923, we have maintained a rich legacy and tradition of Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service in the Atlanta community, and we have been an integral part of Atlanta history, making an impact educationally, civically, and economically.
Eta Sigma members have played an integral role in the fabric of Atlanta leaving lasting footprints due to their dedication and diligence. Public schools in the Atlanta area have been named after past members of Eta Sigma chapter such as Pitts Elementary, named for Soror Clara Pitts; Sammye E. Coan Middle School and M. Agnes Jones Elementary school. Selena Sloan Butler park located in the Auburn Avenue District is named for Soror Selena Sloan Butler who was also a community activist, educator and co-founding member of the National Parent-Teacher Association. Additionally, Soror Jondelle Johnson served as the Director of the Atlanta chapter of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and was instrumental in the association’s success during the 1970s and 1980s. Due to her leadership, the Atlanta NAACP hosted the Jondelle Johnson Freedom Fund Dinner for many years after her death.
Members of the Eta Sigma chapter continue to set the standard for excellence and dedicate themselves to the betterment of each community we serve through Sigma Gamma Rho’s five major service initiatives: Operation Big Book Bag, Women’s Wellness Initiative, Swim 1922, Project Cradle Care and Youth Symposium.
We are proud to be the Heart and Soul of Atlanta.
We invite you to visit our website frequently to learn more about the Eta Sigma chapter’s history, programs, and activities.
Yours In Sisterhood,
Soror Donna Scott
