Family and friends were on hand to congratulate and celebrate with the new members. Mary Katherine Horton, Advisor of Greek Life at Northwestern State University was a special guest.

A special thank you to Candance Grayson, Josephine Winder, Yalaunda Toliver-Taylor, Linda Howard, Sontonio Helaire, Treniya Wadley, and Natalie Acguire for the hard work put forth to insure the event was a successful one and that we are indeed upholding the sorority’s principle of being a finer woman.

Five women from Howard University envisioned a sorority that would raise the consciousness of their people, encourage the highest standards of scholastic achievement, and foster a greater sense of unity among its members. These women believed that sorority elitism and socializing overshadowed the real mission for progressive organizations. Zeta Phi Beta was founded on January 20, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. In 1948, Zeta Phi Beta became the first Greek-letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa (in Monrovia, Liberia). Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity are the only constitutionally bound sorority and fraternity in the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
