Greater Service, Greater Progress
From seven young educators, Sigma Gamma Rho has become an international service organization comprised of women from every profession. Sigma Gamma Rho offers its members opportunities to develop their unique talents through leadership training and involvement in sorority activities. Sorority activities provide an atmosphere where friendships and professional contacts are developed which often lead to bonds that last a lifetime.
Sigma Gamma Rho is committed to the pillar of scholarship by offering scholarships, awards and grants. Organized by seven school teachers, the sorority recognizes the importance of higher education and works to ensure that the doors to secondary and postsecondary opportunity are open to all who have the potential to succeed, regardless of economic background or lack of resources.
Sigma Gamma Rho has a proud history of offering service wherever chapters exist, including OPERATION BigBookBag, a program designed to address the needs, challenges and issues that face school-aged children who are educationally at-risk. Epsilon Lambda Sigma Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter hosts national programs including: Youth Symposium, Operation Big Book Bag as well as several local programs.
On June 19, 1865, more than two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, enslaved Black Americans in Texas were finally notified that they were officially free. Although ALL enslaved people in the U.S. weren't officially granted their freedom until the 13th amendment was ratified on December 6, 1865. Juneteenth serves as a way for African Americans across the United States to collectively celebrate America's Emancipation Day.
Today, we are celebrating America's ideas of freedom and justice for ALL.
